Library Partners with Bernardsville Recreation to Offer Basic First Aid Class

Bernardsville Public Library and Bernardsville Recreation are partnering to offer a class on basic first aid, CPR and how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator) on Thursday, December 6 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.  "We never know when an emergency will strike, so it's always best to be prepared," said Library Director Karen Brodsky, "We saw that in many ways during Hurricane Sandy, and this class is an outgrowth of our desire to give our residents an avenue to be trained so they'll be ready when the need arises."   

This course will be taught by Mine Brook Search and Rescue, Inc., which is based in Far Hills, and the cost is $70/person.  With course completion, attendees will earn an American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid/CPR/AED Course Completion Card that is valid for two years.

The class will be held in the library's Community Room; registration is through the Borough website’s Community Pass portal:  For further information, call Borough Recreation at 908-766-2546 or the Library at 908-766-0118.
