Today marks the beginning of 8 weeks of travel to and from top secret large military base where MSP holds it’s In-Service training…Of which I get to do the 1st Responder refresher portion of…Or as they call it ‘That 1st Aid stuff!!”…

Anyhow… Dress warmly as it is a bit north of home base for me…
One child chokes to death every 5 days in the US. Basic emergency medical training should be taught in schools.
Was sent to me by a contact on Linked. Not sure where the data comes from but with the ability to learn a simple and effective maneuver, the Heimlich, very easy to teach and to learn, these could be prevented.

"Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plentitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual." -- Thomas Jefferson
