    These CPR classes should be taught as a courtesy at no cost regularly throughout our community. It would be wise to do this so lives could be saved by so many while waiting on a first responder to arrive or if someone was out fishing or doing something and couldn’t reach a first responder right away. This should be a community service. Open a free class for so many each month for the benefit of the community, not as a means to generate extra revenue….shame on you!
