Red Cross Offers Instructor Training

12:00AM / Wednesday, March 14, 2007

Williamstown - The Berkshire County Chapter of the American Red Cross is continuing their campaign to recruit individuals interested in becoming instructors in Basic First Aid, adult/infant/child CPR, and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) programs for the lay person.

The next First Aid/CPR/AED Instructor Course will be held at the Williams Inn, on the right of the Village Green at northerly junction of Routes 7 and 2 in Williamstown. It will be held from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. on April 16, 18, 24, 30, and May 8 - 14.

Tentative make-up dates are May 22 & 23, 2007. The course is open to anyone living or working in Berkshire County who is interested in teaching basic level CPR, First Aid, and AED for the Red Cross; for their place of work; or for another community organization.

Individuals seeking CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer instructor training are strongly encouraged to attend this course, also.

The instructor trainer will be Gary Martin, a resident of North Adams and a Pittsfield firefighter. Martin is also a community and workplace first aid, CPR and AED instructor for the Red Cross.

The cost of the training is $175.00. The cost also includes all instructor materials.

"Our goal is for one person in every household to be trained in how to save a life. This cannot be accomplished without an adequate supply of well-trained instructors teaching as volunteers for the chapter and as employees or volunteers at local businesses and organizations throughout the county," said Michael P. Murphy, coordinator of health and safety services for the local chapter.

Pre-registration is required and must be completed by Friday, April 13, 2007 as enrollment is limited. Registration can be done at the chapter house which is located at 480 West Street in Pittsfield or by calling health and safety department at (413) 442-1506 or 1-800-332-2030. Regular business hours are 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
