Benicia CPR/AED Training Classes
Benicia, California – First-Aid and other forms of emergency medicine are essential to any community, and particularly those that are along the water. One of the most common first-aid emergencies asked about in our classes is drowning. And rightfully so – drowning is one of the major killers of young children and is best responded to with a slightly modified approach to the standard CPR training. There are also some modifications to make when using an AED on patients who are wet or in or near water.
While water can be dangerous, it adds to Benicia’s small town charm and it’s beautiful downtown (if you haven’t been, be sure to visit 1st street!). It’s also known for the Benicia Bridge which bears it’s name, though it’s formal title is the Carquinez Bridge.
In the rare, but tragic cases where a person has fallen into the water and drowned, or simply had an accident or suffred from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), the potential for life saving action to take place increases dramatically when those in the immediate vicinity are trained and confident in their CPR and emergency management skills. Learning CPR will help protect you and your neighbors from death, and will make Benicia a safer place.
Josh Sauberman has been a Benicia resident since 2018 and loves meeting and instructing local individuals and organizations in high quality CPR/AED & First-Aid Training.
