TheÂ Ballard PreparesÂ team, with funding from aÂ Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Small and Simple grant, is offeringÂ free emergency first aid training to the first 90 people in the Ballard area (this includes Crown Hill) toÂ apply. The Ballard Prepares team advises that â€œthe objective is to have 90 additional people who live or work in our community trained to be able to respond in an emergency.â€
The course requires two online components to be completed before the one time, in-person training at the Crown Hill Center on January 26th from 9am-2pm.
The online components include blood-borne pathogens, and first aid. The in-class component will include CPR and the use of AEDs.
In exchange for this opportunity,Â Ballard PreparesÂ asks that you make a commitment of being available to respond in your community to emergencies.
