Dabney EMS students present Heartsaver Class for Clifton Middle School Cheerleaders

Instructors from the Emergency Medical Services program at Dabney S Lancaster Community College recently conducted a Saturday morning American Heart Association (AHA) “Heartsaver” class at DSLCC for members of the Clifton Middle School cheerleading squad and some other participants. The class, taught by EMS program head Jeanette Mann and two adjunct instructors, was sponsored by a grant from the Alleghany Foundation and hosted by the Alleghany Heart Association’s Young Miss Queen of Hearts Emily Bartley, who asked the DSLCC EMS program to teach the class to promote heart awareness as a community service project. The class included adult, child and infant CPR and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) training. “Emily offered this class to her peers as she has learned through her reign and advocacy for heart health awareness that should a person suffer a cardiac arrest, that quality CPR by the bystander, use of an AED and early activation of EMS are vital links in the ‘chain of survival’,” noted Mann. Front Row: Mason Bartley (left), Elizabeth Buchanan (coach), Taylor Malcom and Maggie Thompson. Second Row: Instructors William Fry (left) and Heather Hoke, Breeze Riley, Krystal Tucker, Abby Via, Emily Bartley, Alexis Schultz, Zakalia Smith, Lindsey Brown and Jeanette Mann. For more information about requesting a CPR class contact Mann at 540-863-2832 or jmann@dslcc.edu.
