First Aid Training

Red Cross

In Honor of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the other victims of the Tucson shooting in January, Walgreens sponsored the American Red Cross' nationwide "Save-a-Life Saturday" in March 2011. The event offered free training in CPR and wound care as well as training in how to treat a person suffering from shock.

"We have a store in the plaza where the Tucson tragedy occurred, and some of our health care professionals saw firsthand that day the value of knowing CPR," said Greg Wasson, Walgreens President and CEO.

"Our store employees were among the first to call 9-1-1 and provided first aid using supplies from our store. I'm proud of the way our employees responded," said Wasson.
