Local Red Cross board gets certified

On Monday, Dec. 14, members of the Greater Carolinas Chapter Board of Directors took time from their busy schedules to learn CPR, First Aid and AED.


Chair Mike Rash encouraged all the board members to get certified through taking the Red Cross course.

“This is very dear to my heart,” Rash said. He suffered a heart attack earlier this year. Soon after, Rash and the chapter board chair from the Triangle Chapter challenged each other to have 100 percent of their boards certified in First Aid, CPR and AED.


Tate Ogburn, who is a board member and also certified Red Cross instructor, led the board in their skills session on Monday.

“I just hope no one ever has to use it!” he said.
