A group of Cherokee County 4-H’ers recently took a CPR-AED-First Aid class at the Cherokee County Fire Marshal’s Office. According to Sgt. Babette Davis, a Cherokee County Fire Safety Educator, the 4-H’ers spent a full day taking the course and are expected to be recertified every 2 years.

The students learned how to respond to common first aid emergencies including burns, cuts, head, neck and back injuries and more.   They were also able to learn how to respond to cardiac and breathing emergencies, including the use of automated external defibrillators (AED).
 
The 4-H’ers that took the course included: Emily Barbee, Erin Church, Kyle Jones, Savannah Carmichael, Evan Adamson, Kevin Jones, Sarah Buelow, Kelsey Bryant and Lukas Freeman. According to Ashley Witcher, Cherokee County’s 4H Extension Agent, “All of these kids are 4-H teen leaders, which means they have gone through our 4-H leadership training and serve as leaders for younger 4-H’ers. They participate in local, district and state events as teen leaders.”
