Semper Paratus

Posted by CPR Savers and First Aid Supply on 3/23/2016 to Emergency Care

Yesterday, we all awoke to the news of the attacks in Brussels, Belgium. While I was greatly saddened and my heart was burden for the victims and their families, I was also encouraged as the photos of first responders and trained CPR/AED laypersons assisting victims and saving lives.
