Learn CPR at the Snowmass Center

On Oct. 7 and 9, the Snowmass Wildcat Fire Protection District will host a Take Ten CPR Training at the Snowmass Center.

This year’s training is dedicated to Snowmass Village resident Staci Stokes, of Mighty Mouse Management, who earlier this year used the training she received at the 2012 Take Ten event to save the life of a friend having a heart attack.

Take Ten is a 10-minute training session that teaches compression-only CPR. High-quality, uninterrupted compressions initiated as soon as possible after an adult has cardiac arrest (meaning that the heart stops) make a difference in survival, the district says.

Firefighters will offer the training from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 6 through 12. Sign up for a free home inspection by Snowmass Wildcat. Firefighters will check smoke detectors and carbon monoxide devices free of charge.

For more information, call Fire Inspector Frank Rudecoff at 970-923-2212.
