“We learned the CPR techniques, they taught us what to do in an emergency situation, who to call, and what to tell others to do,” Shelby Leonard, a Westside senior, said.
“They showed us what it was like in an emergency situation,” Leonard said. “And people just stand around and they don't know what to do, and so now, we know what to do.”
“I definitely recommend for everyone to get certified,” Leonard said. “Even if you’re not certified, go through some type of CPR training. We also learned how to use an AED (automatic external defibrillator), and that would also be good to know how to use because if nobody knows how to do CPR and there’s someone who needs it, you’re there.”
