Students enjoy First Aid/CPR class at JPASD
The Jackson Parish Ambulance Service District (JPASD) in Jonesboro treated interested students from CCA to a First Aid and CPR training class on November 9th at their new state of the art training center located at 115 Watts Avenue in Jonesboro. Not only did those participating learn valuable and possible life saving skills but also got a tour of the facility and the inside of an ambulance unit.
“We enjoyed teaching them and sharing a little of what we do in EMS,” said JPASD director Aaron Johnson. “Maybe we’ll see them in a future EMT class!”
