Make our Neighborhood Safer.Last year Marcia Lucas' husband collapsed while walking close to Churchill Street Recreation Center. Thankfully, three couples stopped to help. Although he made it to the hospital, they were unable to revive him.
In memory of her husband, and perhaps help others in similar situations, Marcia has begun to organize training for anyone who wants to learn CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator), and the Heimlich maneuver.
Even if you don't think you can perform CPR, the class will help you to be more comfortable in an emergency situation. CPR is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies, including heart attack or near drowning, when someone's breathing or their heartbeat has stopped.
The Heimlich maneuver is a first-aid procedure for dislodging an obstruction from someone's windpipe when they are choking. You can also perform the maneuver on yourself if you are alone and you choke on something.
The class is FREE, but is limited to 40 people. Marcia will schedule more classes if there is sufficient demand. She is also working on getting AEDs for the neighborhood!
Residents (not just Lynnhaven residents, so invite friends) who are interested in learning these life-saving skills or refreshing their memories on how to do them, please call Marcia to register (again, no charge).
