Officer Paul Glejzer of the Burlington Police Department performed an annual volunteer CPR and First Aid course at Somerville’s Winter Hill Yacht Club for members this past Saturday morning.
This particular course takes place annually every December for people interested in CPR and first aid certification or even just for an annual refresher coarse.
Many people attending Saturday’s course were boaters who take the course in the event of an actual emergency occurring out on the open sea before 911 help can arrive.
Another reason for taking the course was because some members were concerned that now with all the development being constructed down at the Assembly Square area that perimeters the yacht club, that an accident is a possibility now that the public utilizes Somerville’s new waterfront.
