Today was "Lunch with Fire Chief" for Claudia Finegar and her grandson Landon. Thank you Firefighter Yelland for the tour at Fire Station 1. Claudia won the lunch and tour with KCFR at the Post Falls Food Bank's annual fundraiser (GHB) last November. Thank you Claudia for your support of the FB!
Please sleep with your doors closed - it makes a difference!
Sleep with your bedroom door closed.
"Hands-only CPR" training at New Vision High School today in Post Falls. Well done, Firefighter Tony Blasick!
Another band of new recruits that could help possibly save the life of a family member, friend or a complete stranger. Each one these classes improves the odds of resucitation and the students did a great job!
Distracted driving class at Post Falls High School today with KCFR Firefighters Tony Blasick and Shea Vucinich; Sophomores and a few Freshman, learning about the consequences of distracted driving. Did you know the #1 cause of teenage death is from injuries sustained in a car accident (speed, inattentiveness and alcohol related)? Remember you can contribute to a bad situation as a passenger too!
Please be careful, don't text, wear your seatbelt, and drive for the conditions. You are our future and we care about you!
CPR training at Post Falls High School today (Sophomore class and a few from the Freshman class too) with KCFR Firefighters Tony Blasick and Ryan Jaderquist. The importance of bystander CPR can not be emphasized enough.
If you know CPR and do "compression only CPR", you increase the patient's chance of survival by about 300%! Most cardiac arrest patients are in their own homes; so you should be prepared to save one of your family members! You should always "just keep doing c...ompressions" until the Fire Department arrives or until someone with an automated external defibrillator shows up to help.
We are proud of the student's participation today, our firefighters and the partnership we enjoy with the Post Falls School District.
This is also a heads up to a free "compression only CPR" and intro training for AED's at Cabela's on February 8th from 4 to 7 pm. See attached flyer.
If you don't know CPR, come on down. We would love to see you!
