First-Aid training available to faculty, staff, students

University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
Posted: Mar 3, 2011

Last month at UH Mānoa, co-workers found an Office of Facilities & Grounds (OFG) employee collapsed and disoriented at an outdoor worksite.  Thankfully, those co-workers had received CPR/First Aid/AED training from Campus Security. They immediately assessed the stricken employee’s condition, called for medical help, and stood by in case emergency resuscitation was needed.
Because time is of the essence when it comes to medical emergencies, quick action by bystanders who have been properly trained increases the rate of survival.
After training about 80 OFG workers, Campus Security Officers will be offering regularly scheduled CPR/First Aid/AED training sessions to UH Mānoa faculty, staff, and students.  Campus Security instructors have been Patrick Movery, Catherine Fontaine, Warren Haney and Jason Renaud, with Dawn Yamane of Auxiliary Enterprises co-instructing.
The next class will be on Wednesday, March 16, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (with a one-hour lunch break) in Campus Center Room 203E. Cost is $26 for instructional manual and certification cards in First Aid and CPR.
