Anybody with CPR skills
 
Anybody else got any other skills that go with CCW? Let me explain. I, in addition to having a gun permit, also am certified to use CPR. I figured in a gun fight situation if someone I know is hit I can help them in addition to putting rounds on target.

Not to mention since I work at a limestone quarry, everyone has to know how to use CPR in a livesaving situation.

I've been thru the Red Cross first aid and cpr. I have not recertified in a few years, put some of those skills you never forget. I was a lifeguard at a lake for several years while I was in school.

Some things are just good to know, ya know.

Done the Army combat life saver class CPR and advanced life support (For animals). I was a vet tech that is why the als was from. But If I shoot your azz I sure ain't tryin to fix you up.

I'm American Heart Association BLS certified. In addition to CPR, I also know how to run an AED.

Both AHA and ARC now recommend using only chest compressions now. They no longer recommend rescue breathing.

I forgot to mention that I also know how to use an AED. Our company brings in Red Cross people every couple of years and trains and recertifies everyone. It makes for an easy work day, sitting in the training room all day and getting paid for it. Plus the company buys us pizza on training days.:D

Because of the nature of my work, I've been certified off-and-on, since I was a Boy Scout in the 1950's. In those days, CPR consisted of laying the patient on their chest, kneeling by their head, pushing down on the chest and lifting the arms. :rolleyes:

I once took an advanced course in college, which included water rescues. Kinda cool. :cool:

Two weeks ago, I re-qualified for first aid, CPR and AED to keep my state investigator's license current.

Haven't recertified in CPR or Major Med. since I left the Agency. Trained every year for 33 years though, does that count?

I used to do some amateur pharmacist work.

I've done some amateur Gynecologist work myself. I first got interested in that field right around my high school years.

Other than that, I'm CPR certified, AED, and CLS trained.
