On January 19, CPR Ready trained 22 members of Center in the Park, a community center for older adults located in Germantown, in hands-only CPR and appropriate AED use. The workshop, led by Joseph Russell from CPR/AED Public Awareness and Training (CPAT) Network, was part of two CPR training events offered at Center in the Park for free with generous support from the Green Tree Community Health Foundation. In October, CPR Ready trained 23 individuals during the first event at Center in the Park.
