8/19   Learn CPR & Other Life Saving Techniques
Cost: FREE

You will learn to perform CPR but not certified. No test will be given.

This class could literally save someone’s life! Did you know that more than 85 percent of cardiac arrests take place at home and that sudden cardiac arrest is the one of the leading causes of death in the United States? Knowing the basics of CPR is a life-saving technique that everyone should know. Unfortunately, most people who suffer a cardiac arrest outside of a hospital do not get cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from a bystander, which significantly lessens their chances of survival. If those present at the scene are able to provide CPR to the victim promptly, the latter’s chances of survival are significantly increased. This is because time is the essence when treating a cardiac arrest victim. Once the heart stops beating and blood flow stops, a person will lose consciousness within 15 seconds.

Other life-saving techniques will also be discussed.

Due to limited seating reservations are required. Reservation deadline: August 17th. Register by calling 812-537-3800 or submit the online form.

Timely Reminders

Dead/Dying trees, Yard Waste Disposal and Traffic Safety

Trees — Dead or dying trees must come down sooner or later, and sooner is better. The cost to remove totally dead trees may be higher as tree removal services consider it dangerous to climb a dead, brittle tree. Please have potentially dangerous trees removed before they fall into the street, on your house or deck or on your neighbors’ property. Several tree services are listed in our Business Directory.

Yard Waste Disposal —The yard waste dumpster near front entrance is for residents’ convenience. Do not dump on vacant lots or in greenspace! Use the dumpster or bundle it for Rumpke (no longer than 4 feet, no heavier than 50 pounds). Please call the POA Office for special pickup.

Traffic Safety — With school now in session and days getting shorter, please remind children walking to the school bus to walk against traffic. Conversely, when on a bike, ride with traffic. Reflective clothing for your children is a great idea. You can purchase reflective belts for under $10.  Drivers, please be extra vigilant when leaving the Valley in the morning!
