Red Cross urges
giving gifts of safety

Star-Bulletin staff

The Hawaii State Chapter of the American Red Cross is encouraging residents to give a gift of safety by purchasing gift certificates for lifesaving training.

They recommend having at least one person in each household trained in CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and first aid in case an emergency arises.

The Red Cross also wants people to be trained in the use of Automated External Defibrillators in case of a heart attack.

Gift certificates for products such as first-aid kits, safety masks and Red Cross logo apparel are also available.

They may be purchased from any Red Cross office throughout the state or via the Internet at

Compassionate Friends of Honolulu, part of a national nonprofit organization that offers friendship and support to bereaved families after a child's death, meets at 10 a.m. the second Saturday of each month at the Church of the Crossroads, 1212 University Ave.

For more information, call 524-4700.
