Are You Due This Year?

April 1, 2015

From: Allen James

Some folks have read my January newsletter and have planned their CPR/First Aid training during the first quarter of the 2015.  Bravo to them!  However, some of you may have forgotten the 2 year cycle of your CPR/First Aid training certifications.  Are you due this year?  Let us NOT have any last minute calendar surprises.  We still have dates open for 2015, so call or email with any date requests or questions you may have.

Remember, we have quality instruction with a focus on orchestrating learning that includes a process on how to ”think” about an emergency and then providing a “tool box” of CPR and First Aid skills.  This training prepares your employees to respond to both corporate and individual emergencies and enables them to prepare their families for natural disasters.  What a wonderful benefit to pass onto your employees’ families.

Regarding Electronic Cigarettes, Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS) and Other Vapor Products:

DO NOT allow children to play with electronic cigarettes or similar devices. They contain batteries and liquid chemicals which, if swallowed, could cause serious health complications. Nicotine is a known poison. Bottles of e-juice, used in e-cigarettes, are a poison risk for small children and pets.

STORE e-cigarettes and their highly toxic refills out of reach of children.

BE AWARE that electronic cigarettes and similar electronic nicotine delivery devices are available in a variety of flavors, such as bubble gum, strawberry, chocolate, mint, candy, cereal, and fruit flavors which may be attractive to children.

Further, recent studies have indicated that the nicotine from e-cigarettes can have significant repercussions for children’s health. Information from the recently released 50th Anniversary Surgeon General report shows that nicotine in high enough doses is acutely toxic, and that exhaled e-cigarette vapor contains formaldehyde and acetaldehyde as well as traces of other carcinogens. There is also suggestive evidence that nicotine exposure during adolescence, when cognitive development is at a critical stage, may have lasting adverse consequences for brain development.
