HANDS-ONLY CPR AND AED TRAINING VIDEOS

by the American Heart Association

Due to Covid restrictions, we are not able to provide Hands-only CR and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) in-person training as we have in the past.  Instead, Whidbey Health (our AED sponsor) has recommended community members watch the following short training videos.  This will satisfy the requirements for re-certification of the AED installed at the clubhouse.  Please email us at sierra.mailbox@gmail.com to let us know you watched these videos.  Thank you!

 


BE PREPARED!

       

 

You've probably heard over and over the importance of being prepared in the event of a natural disaster or other major emergency--well, it's true.

If such an event should happen, the reality is that first responders will quickly become overwhelmed by the volume of calls for help.  Individuals, families, and neighbors may be on their own for several days, weeks, or even months, and will need to care for themselves.

Getting prepared may seem like a daunting task, but even a little preparation can go a long way.   You don't need to go this alone either.  Check out the following resources to help you get prepared and be part of our neighborhood's emergency preparedness program.


SIERRA EMERGENCY TEAM (S.E.T)

The Sierra Emergency Team (S.E.T.) is made of up Sierra residents who volunteer on one or more of the following sub-teams.  

 

Sierra Residents - what's your Zone?

Island County utilizes the award winning and FEMA endorsed program called Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) to help communities prepare for disasters.

Sierra has implemented the Map Your Neighborhood program, and all residents are invited to be part of their zone's team.  This program guides you and your neighbors through simple steps to help enhance your preparedness for an emergency. These steps will help you to quickly and safely take actions that can minimize damage and protect lives. It is designed to improve disaster readiness at the neighborhood level and teaches neighbors to rely on each other during the hours or days before fire, medical, police or utility responders arrive.

 

For more information about the Sierra Emergency Team or theneighborhood zones, please contact your Zone's captain (see list above), or email Sierra.mailbox@gmail.com.
