With the gracious nature of our supporters, GWU (George Washington U
niversity) medical response personnel conducted a CPR for the Professional Rescuer class to auxiliary members.

The course was an extensive and thorough integration for auxiliary members to be successful when responding to rescue situations. Coursework covered topics such such as when and where to perform CPR, what situations/complications a team may encounter, as well as managing situational awareness.

Auxiliary members were also trained in the use of defibrillators on adults, children and infants. Although the USCG Auxiliary never wishes for boaters to be in a situation where they need CPR or defibrillators, our mission is to be always ready. As we are and will continue to be always ready for any situation.

Very respectfully,
Kamal Kalifa
