Emergency Knowledge

The Keller Fire Department is going to be offering a Citizen Fire Academy and Community Emergency Response Team course.  It includes information on fire safety, search and rescue, disaster operations, and basic emergency medical services (including CPR).  The only requirements for entering the course are that you are a resident of Keller (or work here) and are at least 21.

I’m tempted to put in an application.  It’d be interesting to learn about these things, and I’d been contemplating taking a CPR course, so that would be a bonus.  The classes are one night a week from 6:30 to 9:30 for twelve weeks with three Saturday classes.

    I say go for it.  I doubt you will be bored, and there should be plenty of valuable information that will apply beyond what they concentrate on.  CPR classes usually cost a fair amount, sounds like this would be free, so that’s a bonus.

    I was okay with CPR classes except paying for the final exam to get the certificate (didn’t have the money at the time).  Since then, I have wondered about putting my mouth on someone else’s without the little protective envelope that is used now.  I keep hoping for a really beautiful girl needing my help, but since I am the guy always seated next to the grossly overflowing into my seat passenger or the third world refugee that needs a bath and to stop hacking up a lung passenger on airplanes… well, doesn’t seem like I will luck out for CPR on a supermodel…
