If you are hurt and need medical care in Twinsburg, rest assured that the city's employees have received emergency training.

This year, more than 90 of the city's non-emergency staff were given training in First Aid, CPR, AED use and fire extinguisher use. The training took place over three days. These photos were taken during the May 4 training, which included staff from the building, service and engineering departments.

Those attending the seven-hour classes earned American Heart Association certifications in First Aid and CPR/AED.

Fire extinguisher training was based on curriculum from the National Fire Protection Association. Instructors for the CPR and First Aid courses came from a pool of certified city staff from the Twinsburg Fire Department and Twinsburg Aquatics, who also serve as proctors for the hand-on portion of the certification.

The Twinsburg Fire Prevention Bureau handled the fire extinguisher training utilizing their new state of the art digital laser extinguisher trainer.
