Free STOP the BLEED Training offered

The Community of Windham Foundation will introduce a new sort of training, part of the Stop the Bleed initiative, on Friday, March 6.

The free class is currently planned for the meeting room at the Windham Wastewater Treatment Plant, beginning at 9 a.m. Advance registration is requested, so organizers know how many participants to expect.

“The number 1 cause of preventable death after injury is bleeding,” according to the group, which boasts over one million people worldwide have completed “Stop the Bleed” training.

To sign up call Jeri Miltenberger at (518) 734 4335 or email jrwest4335@gmail.com; or call Denise Meehan (518) 734 4605 or email denisemeehan14@gmail.com

Free CPR-AED Training Class Offered

The Community of Windham Foundation will host free CPR-AED training classes with certified instructor Reay Mahler on May 2, 2020 and October 24, 2020.

An Automated External Defibrillator, or AED, can potentially stop an irregular heartbeat and allow a normal rhythm to resume following sudden cardiac arrest.

These trainings are free to attend, but only open to fifteen participants. Advance registration is required. To express interest this or a future class, email…denisemeehan14@gmail.com or jrwest4335@gmail.

Since launching the program, over 75 persons in our area have attended and been trained in CPR and AED. You too, can save a life with free certified CPR and AED training.
