Red Cross offers free CPR training

Written by 

Haywood and Jackson County residents can attend free CPR training from the American Red Cross. Registration is open for “CPR Saturday,” which is sponsored by MedWest Carolina’s Healthcare. The event will be held with two classes at each location March 12 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Included in the class is traditional CPR training, which involves compressions and mouth-to mouth breathing techniques, as well as compressions-only CPR at some locations. Recent studies have reported that in many cases compression-only CPR can be as effective as traditional CPR in saving lives. In Haywood County, the class is offered at Haywood Regional Health and Fitness Center and the Waynesville Recreation Center.

For the last couple of months, the location has played host to a weekly open mic event called the Spontaneous CombustJam.
