A near-death experience at a basketball game in Two Rivers is providing a good example for the importance of CPR training at schools and local businesses.A referee collapsed with a heart attack while refereeing the game and was saved by school officials and on-site first responders.
The Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department has been working with the Gibraltar Area School District on training their faculty for such an occasion for over the last year. Fire Chief Chris Hecht says it is great to work with a group that is so proactive.
In the New Year, Hecht and the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department hope to expand their partnerships to Northern Door businesses in need of first responder training.
