Teaching life saving lessons


The MarMac Rescue Squad held its first CPR/first aid course of the month on Saturday. EMT and certified instructor Liz Clark taught the class, while other EMTs helped. Clark instructed the class on CPR, stressing the importance of compressions. She said breathing is no longer as important, but that, if you are going to do breathing, a mask should be used. She also explained how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) to restore a regular heart rhythm. (Photos by Audrey Posten)
