scottb@herald-mail.com I helped a dummy breathe and regain consciousness Saturday. Well, sort of. Dan the Dummy, as I called the "person" I practiced CPR on, would have thanked me for saving his life - if he had ever been alive. Instead, I thanked him for helping me become better prepared for emergencies. During a three-hour workshop, Kimberly Buchanan, director of health and safety for the American Red Cross in Washington County, taught about 40 of us CPR - cardiopulmonary resuscitation - and other medical procedures as part of the Citizen's Emergency Preparedness Day at the Robinwood Medical Center.

andrews@herald-mail.com Choking, poisoning, bleeding - the treatment of each is covered in first aid classes. Kimberly Buchanan, director of health and safety for the American Red Cross's Washington County chapter, couldn't say what percentage of the population knows how to react in each situation. But even those who know need an occasional refresher. "It's kind of a 'use it or lose it' kind of thing," she said.
