Amelia Academy Staff Obtains CPR Re-certifications

2019, January 24: Amelia Academy staff and bus drivers attended a cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training class held at Amelia County High School. Knowing CPR helps Academy staff to put student safety and well-being at the forefront of our activities. Included in the training was use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), how to use an epi-pen, basic first aid skills, stroke and heart attack signs and symptoms and what to do if a person exhibits those signs and symptoms, along with how to recognize and treat symptoms of diabetic emergencies.
