The Burning Man Festival is coming and Northwest CPR is working on donating CPR training to the Black Rock Rangers.
The Black Rock Rangers are participants who volunteer a portion of their time at Burning Man in service of the safety and well-being of the Burning Man community. Rangers act as non-confrontational community mediators, providers of reliable information, and facilitators of public safety. Some Rangers have had the opportunity to learn first-aid and CPR skills through their employers, or own their own, but many have not. While Burning Man has an emergency medical response system similar to most American cities, beginning CPR sooner helps to increase the chances of survival. This is why I believe that it enabling as many Rangers who wish to have CPR skills to learn it at no cost is important.
To reach this goal Northwest CPR will be donating our time and instructional materials to do two trainings before the event and three trainings during the event. That means there should be 50 people trained in CPR at no cost at this year’s festival.
If you’d like to donate towards this goal please contact us.
Thank you for your support!
