Free! Learn CPR From the Red Cross for Gabrielle Giffords Honorary Save a Life Saturday!

What an important way to spend a Saturday. March 19th, the American Red Cross is hosting the Gabrielle Giffords Honorary Save a Life Saturday across the country.

From their website:

“To honor Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and all those involved in the Tucson tragedy, the American Red Cross Grand Canyon Chapter will offer free lifesaving training at locations across Arizona on Saturday, March 19, 2011.

The training will last 45 minutes to one hour, and will include instruction in hands-only CPR, controlling external bleeding and managing shock. Participants can receive training from their local Red Cross chapter in Flagstaff, Lake Havasu City, Phoenix, Prescott and Yuma.

“The tragedy in Tucson is a reminder of how important it is for everyone to know first aid and CPR,” said Gail McGovern, president and CEO of the American Red Cross. “As this tragic event unfolded, several bystanders knew these vital skills, which helped save the lives of many victims, including Congresswoman Giffords. This inspired us to offer this training in order to help save lives in communities nationwide.”

The Red Cross is able to provide this free training through the generous support of Walgreens and Safeway.

“We can think of no better way to honor Congresswoman Giffords and the other Tucson victims than to equip a greater number of citizens with life savings skills,” said Safeway Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Steve Burd. “We are honored to be a partner in this important national endeavor and commend the Red Cross for leading it.”
