T
he en­tire staff of the Millington Arbela District Library is now trained in ba­sic First Aid, the use of the Automated External Defibrillator (AED), and have re­ceived CPR Certification. Cardiopulmonary re­sus­ci­ta­tion (CPR) is a life­sav­ing tech­nique use­ful in many emer­gen­cies, in­clud­ing heart at­tack or near drown­ing, in which someone’s breath­ing or heart­beat has stopped.

It is hoped that these skills will never need to be put to use. However, if the need should arise, the staff is ready to re­spond. The next step in this project is to buy a portable de­fib­ril­la­tor, pos­si­bly with grant funds.
