YOUTH CORPS OPEN HOUSE INFORMATION: Chappaqua Volunteer Ambulance Corps will hold two open houses for Youth Corps recruiting. Interested students must turn 16-years old by the fall of 2012. The informative, casual event will be held Tuesday, March 13 and Tuesday, March 20th between 7-8 PM. All interested youth must have a guardian or parent in attendance.
“At CVAC, we are really proud of our Youth Corps and how much they learn and grow during their time with us,” said Brendan Dymes, Youth Corps leader. “The kids get really motivated by their responsibilities and feel a great sense of pride in helping out their community – it’s truly a win win.”
In addition to becoming full-riding members, the Youth Corps is involved in inventory checks, re-stocking, and vehicle operation checks amongst other things.

CPR TRAINING INFORMATION: Due to an overwhelming response, CVAC will hold an additional Community-Wide American Heart Association “Family and Friends” CPR Course. Training is open to all New Castle residents.
This is “hands only” adult CPR, child CPR with breaths, and infant CPR. Relief of choking in adult, child and infant is taught as well. The course is video based, and includes hands-on exercises with instructor guidance. It is for those who wish to learn CPR skills but do not need a course completion card for their job or organization.
Sunday, March 18, 2012 from 10:00-12:00 Noon. The course runs approximately two hours. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing, as you will be bending and kneeling during the practical exercises
