Danny Wegescheide, Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital Paramedic, recently conducted Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillator training for the students at the Sullivan Fire Department. This training was offered free of charge through the School Nurse partnership program that the hospital has with the school.
Over a dozen students completed the course and became certified during the morning and afternoon sessions. Danny instructed the students how to implement life-saving CPR techniques on mannequins. He also showed them the proper use of an AED device. Each participant will be better prepared to help in a real life situation during an emergency. “I was glad to work with the students to show them proper procedures when administering CPR and using the AED,” remarked Danny Wegescheide, paramedic.
“We appreciate the Sullivan Fire Department allowing us to conduct our classes in their training room and for Danny Wegescheide sharing this valuable education with the high school students,” added Tambra Sellers, RN for the School Partnership Program.
