A teacher's job isn't just about education, but keeping their students safe. Omaha Holy Name Elementary School teachers and staff got the skills to do that from a grant through the United Way. They took a CPR and first aid class on Saturday.
The United Way offers the funds for schools like Holy Name that don’t necessarily have it in the budget. The Red Cross says these are lifesaving skills teachers and staff will have.
"The opportunity to react calmly to any kind of emergency situation and provide the care that the person needs or simply to assess whether or not there is an emergency in fact occurring,” said Alyson Roach of the Red Cross.
Anyone interested in taking a CPR or first aid class should contact the Red Cross.
