CPR/Stroke Classes for Seniors

Lear Hands-Only CPR flier

Of the many people who experience major medical emergencies each year, a number of the victims do not receive the help they need because their emergencies are not obvious—to themselves or passersby.

EMS has designed a free, non-certifiable course especially for seniors* to help them recognize the signs of stroke, learn hands-only CPR, and learn what to say to 911 dispatchers when someone is experiencing a medical emergency.

There will be a free, one-hour training at Balllard Community Center on Oct. 23 from 10:30-11:30 am.

Ballard Community Center
6020 28th Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107
October 23, 2017
10:30 – 11:30 AM

Please consider taking the time to attend this class. You could be the difference in someone’s life.

* Notes: This class is intended for those 60 and older, but you will not be turned away if you attend.  This is a FREE class. No preregistration required. Just show up and sign in when you arrive. If you cannot attend one of the classes offered in October, there will be others offered in locations around Seattle through winter and spring of 2018.

Housing Affordability and Liveability Focus Groups
Monday, June 13, 6:30 to 7:45 PM
Sunday, July 31, 1-3 PM
Greenwood Public Library
8016 Greenwood Ave N

PNA Village Member Mary Holscher invites you to come to one or both of these community conversations about the Housing Affordability and Liveability Agenda (HALA) that she has scheduled at the Greenwood Public Library. Mary is a member of one of the newly-formed Focus Groups for HALA, along with four other people from the Greenwood/Phinney Ridge Urban Village. They are part of a Focus Group of about 40 people who live in or close by “Lower Density Urban Villages,” which also includes Madison-Miller, Morgan Junction, Ravenna, South Park, Upper Queen Anne, Wallingford, Westwood-Highland Park (outside area: Magnolia, Sand Point).

The Focus Group meets monthly at City Hall and is open to the public. Mary’s intention is to bring concerns and questions from people who live in our neighborhood to Focus Group discussions and also bring what she is learning about HALA to our neighborhood. She hopes to become a more informed and helpful HALA Focus Group member through talking with you. She looks forward to learning from you and sharing with you what she is learning!

Detailed information about HALA is at www.seattle.gov/hala.
