Annual CPR Training

Annual CPR Training

Troop 353 was fortunate to have Westchester Putnam Council’s ace CPR instructor, John Clear, visit us recently for our annual CPR training. The instruction was highly effective, included hands-on skills building and written Red Cross exams. Mr. Clear enlightened the troop about recent changes to CPR standards, i.e., do not use more than 10 seconds to try and find a pulse during the early ABC stage–it wastes valuable time and most are unsuccessful at finding the pulse. Twenty individuals in Troop 353 are now Red Cross certfied to provide CPR. Of all the things a boy learns during his scouting experience, perhaps none is more important than CPR.

  1. I was certified for CPR by John Clear and would like a number to contact him for recertification! I have at least 3 people more who would like to recertify. Previously I was certified in Ardsley, NY. Please call me at 914 830 7733!
