CPR and First Aid are skills anyone can learn that can save lives in a matter of seconds. When fifty-eight-year-old bus driver, Susan Lecrenski, encountered a student with a life-threatening allergic reaction, she used the skills she learned in First Aid to use an Epi Pen to save the student’s life. American Red-Cross honored Lecrenski as a Hometown Hero. Lecrenski voiced, “I hope my story raises some awareness because a lot of bus comapnies don’t make CPR, First-Aid and Epi-pen training mandatory. It should be. Drivers should know how to use these things if the need arises.”
CPR and First Aid skills can also be just as valuable to teens as adults. While shopping at Walmart, seventeen-year-old Abby Snodgrass heard a cry for help when an 11-month infant stopped breathing. She responded to the call, and put her newly learned CPR skills to the test. “I remember thinking as I’m doing the compressions, ‘What if this doesn’t work?’ But I had to put it out of my mind… I can’t explain how happy I was when she started to breathe.”
