Sign up for interest in First aid and/or CPR.  First aid certification is good for 3 years, CPR is good for 1.  Certificate programs are not free.  I'm not sure what it will cost to have it on site at Noisebridge, but it's $60/class ($110 for 2?) if you sign up for scheduled classes, so keep that in mind.

So as it turns out, we have a friend (soon to be member?) who is qualified to certify us in first aid and CPR. He can be reached at cprmichael at yahoo. He's offered to teach the class whenever we want to schedule, and willing to do this on a donation basis. I think this is a fabulous opportunity not only to spread around life-saving-type knowledge, but do so without having to deal with large institutional structures.

The first class was clearly successful, but I see a lot of people are interested that couldn't make it. Someone else can schedule the next one, so if you're still interested, feel free to make this around your schedule.

People who signed up but didn't make the class:

  • Slim
  • Josh
  • Remy
  • Jeffrey Malone
