Each year thousands of lives could be saved around the world if citizens were more equipped with first aid skills. United Regional Medical Center and the Coffee County Rescue Squad are teaming up to bring emergency education awareness to area residents.
On Saturday, Feb. 9, URMC and CCRS will present “Knowledge Saves Lives: A Free Emergency Education Event” from 10 a.m. until noon at the Coffee County Rescue Squad Building in Manchester, 2270 Murfreesboro Hwy. At this event, local health professionals will teach non-certified CPR training, school safety education, AED and first responder tips, as well as first aid/basic emergency education. Community members will also enjoy snacks and door prizes during the event.
Anyone interested in learning about basic first aid — a skill which one day may ultimately save a life — is welcome. To find out more, visit United Regional Medical Center’s website at <www.URMCHealthCare.com> or look for them on Facebook.
