CPR training for Duluth's youth

 

DULUTH, Minn.- Some Northland seventh graders have picked up some new skills thanks to the Superior Fire Department.

More than three hundred students were trained in CPR and many other life–saving capabilities.

The Superior Fire Department partnered with Enbridge Energy to provide the training. A grant from Enbridge also provides funding for the Superior Fire Department to also train students on how to use an automated external defibrillator  give first aid, and use firefighting skills.

The event was informative, but also fun students. Each of the life–saving exercises lasted for 12 minutes.

After today’s event, more than nine hundred students in the area have now been trained on CPR through this project.
