CPR and First aid training should be considered a social responsibility that every person is willing to yield.

It is very important to have a CPR and First Aid training because it comes in handy when you least expected. I had checked on a patient who was impulse and the patient turned blue and I called code blue and started CPR. If I didn't go through the CPR training course every 2 years and the many practice I get at work I would of been too scared to touch the patient. I had to be confident and take charge until professionals arrived to take over.

The importance to have a CPR and First Aid training is vital for my field, working with children every day I feel more realistic to be ready for any emergency around the children and my partners in my environment.

I've recently started a CPR class because I've recently had a family member go through a heart attack and i seen it all and it traumatized me and it showed me the importance of learning because if i knew what to do earlier i would've known what to do and been able to help but I didn't know what to do other than to stare and in shock scared so many things going through my mind, I started the class because it can help me in the future on being able to help and act fast and save someone's life.

I have recently learned the importance of CPR because a family member was saved by CPR when she had a heart attack.
