Red Cross Plans CRP Training, Fire Safety Outreach

The American Red Cross will offer free hands only CPR Training from 4 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, at the Cascades Library. This is not a certified course, but an educational, hands-on class that teaches the basics of CPR to make our community better prepared.

As part of a nationwide Red Cross initiative to reduce home fire deaths and injuries by 25 percent over the next five years, the Loudoun Red Cross volunteers will canvass neighborhoods that are at-risk for home fires to install smoke alarms where needed and to provide fire safety education. Residents may join the effort from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15.

To register for either event or for more information, contact Red Cross Executive Director for Loudoun County Erwin Stierle at 571-293-1771.
