It’s the start of a new month, so we wanted to touch base with our audience with an updated course schedule. As usual, we have several Maryland HQL sessions along with a hand full of specialized police training courses approved by the Secretary of the Maryland State Police and the Maryland Police Training and Standards Commission. We are also offering several sessions for our Heartsaver course, which focuses on teaching all attendees CPR, AED usage, and first aid skills.
Who is the Heartsaver Course Designed For?
Many of our courses are geared toward those looking to become law enforcement officers or enter the world of firearm ownership, but Heartsaver is unique in that its really designed for everyone!
This course provides training that can genuinely save lives. Immediate CPR and AED usage, two crucial skills covered in this course, can boost cardiac arrest survival rates by over 50%. When you consider that over 350,000 individuals suffer from cardiac arrest in a given year, the importance of these skills starts to become quite clear. Whether you are a student, teacher, parent, or business owner, it can be quite risky to avoid learning these life-saving strategies.
Let’s consider the alternative to learning the nuances of CPR and AED usage at some point in your life. In the event of an emergency, you will be able to contribute by calling 911 and awaiting the arrival of emergency services. Now consider that the average police response time in Baltimore is about 16 minutes. That is quite a scary situation for the victim to be in along with you as a first responder.
Even if the victim is transported to the hospital in time without an immediate CPR response, their recovery experience will likely be longer and more complicated than it could’ve been with earlier care. Hearstsaver training empowers bystanders to calmly and confidently intervene during these emergencies. As a direct result, you will no longer have to worry about being thrust into an emergency situation in the future. You will already have the safety skills that cardiac arrest victims can’t live without.
