Holy Faith Lutheran Church on Paradise Road in Oak Ridge held its first ‘Heartsaver First Aid, CPR and AED’ course on Saturday, January 20.

A total of 19 church and community members were trained in CPR for the adult, child and infant, how to use the automatic external defibrillator (AED), and the administration of first aid by the Atlantic Training Center. Completion of this class resulted in receiving a certification in these skills. Those who attended had the opportunity to interact with each other, practice working as a team, as well as meet a few new community members. “The world is now just a little bit safer.”
