On Monday March 21, 2016 ten members of the Fort Myers Beach Yacht Club (FMBYC) participated in a CPR/AED training class at Fire Station 1 on Fort Myers Beach. The class was arranged with the help of Firefighter Alex Gonzalez who was one of two instructors teaching the class. Fire Prevention Specialist Bill Genvrino was the other instructor.
The FMBYC has been receiving training in the use of CPR and the AED from the Fort Myers Beach Fire Department for the last several years. We find it to be a very important tool to have since we may not have the capability of receiving assistance quickly on the water should someone have a medical emergency. Over the course of the last 6 years we have had approximately 35 people trained by the Fire Department and hope to continually update each year.
Our thanks go out the Fort Myers Beach Fire Department for teaching our members this very important skill.
