On Saturday, Feb. 7 a CPR training class was held in Dudleyville. The training was put together after Lora Snow from Kearny ambulance had spoken at an Aravaipa Property Owner's Association meeting and suggested it. Residents of Aravaipa felt that due to the length of time it takes for an ambulance to get to Aravaipa that it would be a good idea to learn CPR Members of the Aravaipa Property Owners Association contacted Olivia, Chairman of the Aravaipa Fire Department and the class was organized.

The CPR class was taught by Karen Hauca, Bill Predgo and Cheryl Primero-Predgo. All three instructors are former fire department personnel and first responders. The class was taught for free. The instructors said they were "not in it for the money but to save lives". There was a charge of $10 for the Red Cross certification card.

Twenty people attended the class which included learning to operate an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). Class members were from Dudleyville, Aravaipa, Kearny and the Hayden-Winkelman area. The Dudleyville Fire District is looking at starting a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). The instructors are certified to teach CERT and are interested in doing a combined CPR - CERT training.

Karen Hauca is the president and lead instructor for AZ Safety Solutions. They are willing to come and train any groups, churches, organizations, businesses, and schools that are interested in learning Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Contact Karen at 480-329-5570 or
