In 2013 during CPR Awareness and AED week, we invited the survivors of out of hospital cardiac arrest treated in Fort Worth and their families to attend a survivor celebration at City Hall. 14 survivors, their rescuers, and families attended. Ages ranged from 8 to 74 years of age. Every survivor present had bystander CPR prior to EMS or First Responders arriving. They were recognized at the City Council Meeting as they announced the kick-off of our Take 20 for Life Hands Only CPR Training.
Your business may be prepared to respond and recover after a natural disaster like a tornado, fire or flood, but what will you do if an active shooter enters your workplace or organization? In the wake of shootings at the Navy Yard, Newtown, Fort Hood, and Fort Worth's own Wedgewood Baptist Church, this scenario, unthinkable just a few short years ago, is a sad reality for which you must prepare. This workshop, sponsored by the Fort Worth Safe Communities Coalition, is led by local law enforcement, EMS, fire, mental health, business, emergency management and security experts experienced in active shooter prevention, preparation and response. The overall goal is to provide you with the information and tools you need to begin to prepare for the unthinkable.
The African American Health Expo is proud to announce that it will be hosting its “12th Annual” event at the wonderful Wilkerson-Greines Activity Center from 10am to 2pm. We are inviting the community to come out to participate in the fun and activities for all ages, as we help raise awareness of major health issues in our African American community. We look forward to seeing everyone.
