FREE training in hands-only CPR, infant and child choking and “Stop the Bleed” [#FREECPRTraining #StopTheBleed #IoniaMichigan]

John Carter’s legacy may be the gift of teaching others how to save a life, thanks to a collaboration between the Michigan Department of Corrections, the Ionia County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Division and Sparrow Ionia Hospital.

John Carter, a corrections officer at Ionia Bellamy Creek Correctional Facility, died from a heart attack while at work in 2018.

A $5 hamburger meal fundraiser on Aug. 13, 2019 at the facility in his memory netted $1,300, which helped make it possible to offer FREE training in hands-only CPR, infant and child choking and “Stop the Bleed” to the public, according to Jerry Ritz, a registered nurse at Bellamy Creek who organized the fundraiser.

“We want to teach high-quality CPR to anyone that wants to come. Our goal is to offer these services everywhere in Ionia County.”
– Jerry Ritz

2 sessions of the training — one from 9 to 11 a.m. and another from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. — will be offered Saturday at the Ionia County Intermediate School District, 2191 Harwood Road, in Ionia., Michigan.
