Mother Nature has teased us these mid- March days with sunshine and 60-70 degree days. More people are out shopping, exercising and congregating.
I am looking forward to expanding the CPR and First Aid classes ... (Full Story & Photos)

When to Call 911

Vice President Chris Schoon, February 24

Calling 911?
Do you know if it is an emergency?
Chest pain with radiation to an arm, back or jaw? Call 911.
The pain just doesn’t go away. Call 911.

When it comes to a heart attack, time is heart muscle. That is why calling early is so important. The crew of the responding ambulance can perform an EKG on the spot and transmit it to the hospital getting immediate results. The Patient has the right ... (Full Story & Photos)
