American Red Cross Recognition
Aug. 1, 2011
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - During the morning of Monday, August 1, the American Red Cross' Marie Tasker presented UNLV Atheltics Director Jim Livengood on behalf of UNLV Athletics with a framed certificate in recognition and appreciate of a partnership forged to promote education and certification in CPR Training.
Part of the partnership provides the use of the Thomas & Mack Center for the purpose of education and certifying the masses in CPR Training.
The first "Super CPR Saturday" event took place on April 23, 2011, while the next one is scheduled for March 31.
Other community partners in this event include KLAS 8 News Now, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) of Southern Nevada, Nevada Recreation and Park Society (NRPS)-Southern Nevada Aquatic Committee, and Century Link.
Over 300,000 people each year die from sudden unexpected heart attacks and many of those deaths could be prevented by intervention by someone who knows CPR or has access to an automated external defibrillator (AED).
