Darke County Red Cross...
Have a Heart  - Save a Heart!
February 14, 2012

As this month turns to hearts with Valentine’s Day, learn how to save a heart! Learn CitizensCPR, the hands-on only CPR, in just 30 minutes. 

What a great way to beat the blahs of winter for a regular group of friends, your organization, your staff, a Sunday school class, a family reunion or your clients. Most people who survive a cardiac emergency were helped by a bystander. That could be you! 

There is no written testing for CitizensCPR.  It’s an introductory class, without learning of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation or AED usage. A trained instructor is provided and practice will be given on a special compression tool to insure that each participant is comfortable and skilled in hands-on CPR before the party is complete.  We’ll come to your group or church or location. 

All you need is an open room and a few participants.  You can make a Valentine’s Day party out of it with some food or drink for after the class.  Participants are floor taught with accommodations made for those with knee issues.  

Another class that can be taught in 30 minutes is Disaster Preparedness planning with a Make-It-Take-It Kit.  

This is a service of the Darke County Red Cross and a fundraiser. Free-will donations for the

Training/party  help to support the mission of the Red Cross.  This party class does not qualify for CPR certification needed for work or school. 

Contact director Lynne Gump at with questions, 548-1002 or Eileen Litchfield, volunteer, to schedule, 547-0092.
