When a dear friend had a heart attack, I was so frightened for him. Fortunately, he made it through, but I hated that helpless feeling so I enrolled in a Red Cross CPR class. From that point on, I've been trying to learn something new every day, to help myself be better prepared for the future. After 9/11, I realized that more people need to learn first aid and survival skills.
Working in the construction industry, I enjoy taking old houses and making them beautiful with new windows and new rooms, etc. I feel more confident that I can handle any accidents or injuries that could occur around me as walls get opened up and new rooms get built.
