Sam’s Club—Fargo granted $500 to Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch to underwrite the cost of AED Trainers, which will be used during the mandatory CPR training courses on our Fargo campus. The granted funds from Sam’s Club were donated through Sam’s Club’s Community Grant Program.
CPR training teaches lay and medical rescuers to recognize emergencies, call for help, assess for breathing, and restore the flow of oxygen to the brain with chest compressions and rescue breaths. To provide the safest environment and the best possible care for the kids we serve, and to make our community a safer place, all Ranch employees are required to be CPR certified.
