Save a life!  Take the CPR and Bicyclist First Class that is being offered to DBTC members. 

The classes will be held at the Aurora Treads Store.   You have a choice of two night sessions or day-long session.  The night sessions (both are required) will be held Tuesday, February 23, and Thursday, February 25, from 6 to 8pmish.  The Tuesday class will cover CPR and a small portion of First Aid and the second class will cover the remaining portion of the First Aid and an additional portion to specifically address bicycle related injuries.   The day-long class will be Saturday, February 27, from 10 am until 2:30pmish. 


The cost is $50.

For DBTC ride leaders who led five or more trips last year, the cost will only be $25 and the club has agreed to pick up the remaining cost (our way of saying thanks).  


Scott Houchin, a DBTC Board Member and CPR/First Aid Instructor for the American Heart Association and American Red Cross, will be the teacher. Scott is an EMT and has been a medic on bike rides all over the country.  His First Aid course includes the normal first aid curriculum AND an additional portion specifically on how to address bicycle injuries.  These include:  how to immobilize a broken collarbone, wrist, arm, dislocated shoulder, ankle, etc.; what to do when a biker has a head injury; how to safely immobilize a patient with a back/spinal cord injury; how to make a scene safe; and of course, how to treat cardiac arrest, stroke and other cardiac issues.  Plus, the most important of all – when to call 911 and what to say!


The classes will be held at TREADS,16701 E Iliff Ave, Aurora.  If you are interested in taking the course, contact Scott Houchin to make a reservation at be sure to put CPR Class in the RE:  portion of the email. Payment for the classes can be made by check or cash at the event.
