|Instructor Karen Arndt|
Five residents took advantage of a free training course to help manage illness and injuries in infants, children and adults until professional help arrives.
The certified course was offered through a partnership of Comstock Park Community Outreach, the Salvation Army and Alpine Township. It was conducted by Karen Arndt, a certified instructor for the Salvation Army Disaster Relief Services and a previous instructor for the American Red Cross. The five hour class took place at the Alpine Township Fire Station at Alpine Church Road. The program included training in CPR and AED as well as first aid, medical emergencies, injury emergencies and environmental emergencies.
Similar courses are planned for the future based on need and demand.
