Renee Jones, RN, presents a free WOW! Working on Wellness Forum entitled “First Aid in the Home” at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 8, at Olympic Medical Park, 840 N. Fifth Ave., in Sequim.
The presentation covers the skills necessary to control bleeding, treat a burn, splint a broken bone and aid someone who is choking. She addresses what to know about a situation before starting to help someone else, including the basic three “C’s” of every emergency. She discusses supplies that should be in every home or car.
