ROTARIANS SAVE LIVES – and YOU CAN TOO!
Join us on February 17th for a compelling program showcasing how our community works together to save lives in our area. Seattle Fire Department Chief and Seattle 4 Rotarian, Harold Scoggins, will start our program with an overview of our region’s emergency response services and highlight how local systems, like MEDIC ONE collaborate in a unique way to save lives in our community multiple times every day! Following a brief demo, everyone in the ballroom will have a hands on CPR lesson delivered by one of 30 MEDIC ONE volunteers joining us. Mark Wright will close our program with an inspiring interview with a real life-saving hero who saved the life of a fellow Rotarian! You never know when you might be the one to make the difference between life and death for a family member, colleague or a complete stranger… so come learn and/or refresh your CPR skills. If you can donate blood next Wednesday (before or after lunch) please register here for yet another live-saving act.
