The Craftsbury Public Library will be hosting a FEMA sponsored course on emergency response titled “You Are the Help until Help Arrives”. This course will be held at the library on Sunday, January 26 from 1-4pm.  There is no cost for this program, but pre-registration is required.  This program is a part of the library’s monthly winter series Library University that provides an opportunity for community members to share skills with each other.

The people nearest in proximity to someone with life-threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care. First care focuses on five essential actions, including moving someone away from ongoing danger, positioning the injured so they can breathe, stopping life-threatening bleeding, keeping them warm, and providing comfort. First care can contribute to saving a life.  The course will also cover hands-only CPR, which can aid in cardiac resuscitation.

This course will be taught by Margaret Slosberg, MD, MPH.  Margaret has split her time between Lyme, NH and Craftsbury, VT since 1991.  A retired internist with Dartmouth Hitchcock, she currently fulfills her public health interests as Emergency Management Director for the Town of Lyme. In this role she has been trained to present this FEMA course which serves to provide the public with basic skills to respond and assist in traumatic emergencies (e.g. falls, car accidents, farm equipment trauma) until First Responders and the ambulance arrive.This presentation will be a mix of hands-on skills training and discussion.
