The American Red Cross in Alger, Baraga, Gogebic, Iron, and Marquette Counties is offering a variety of preparedness and emergency courses.
The First Aid and CPR/AED courses teach people how to perform CPR and use an AED (automated external defibrillator), what to do if someone is choking, and how to prevent and respond to other emergencies until advanced medical help arrives.
