FASTEX, a North Texas provider of first aid and safety training and supplies, will offer a CPR+AED certification course and blood drive on March 1st, 2014, at Get ReFormed Pilates, from 3-6 p.m. Proceeds go to the Michael Joffrey Swieczkowski Memorial Band Scholarship.

Online PR News – 20-February-2014 – Dallas, TX – FASTEX of North Texas is highly committed to supporting important health-related causes through first aid, safety, CPR and AED training. The CPR+AED training scheduled for March 1st, 2014 at the Get Reformed Pilates Studio will serve both purposes - to help more people become equipped with life-saving skills while also supporting an excellent cause.

"The Michael Joffrey Swieczkowski Memorial Band Scholarship is a wonderful cause that benefits a graduating Frisco Centennial High School senior," said Fran Riggs, owner and manager of FASTEX. "In addition to supporting this important fund, we’ll also be hosting a blood drive, at the same time and location, in support of the Will Steel Memorial Blood Drive. Participants in this training can make a difference in two important ways, while also getting certified in CPR and the use of an automated external defibrillator, or AED."

The CPR+AED course will be taught by Michael Riggs of FASTEX, a retired paramedic who devotes his time to first aid training and helping people to understand the critical life-saving capability of automated external defibrillators. Suggested donations for the CPR+AED course are $60, with all proceeds going to the Michael Joffrey Swieczkowski Memorial Band Scholarship fund.

"Both Michael Joffrey and Will Steel died from a rare and aggressive form of cancer called Dismoplastic Small Round Tumor," Ms. Riggs said. "We are honored to support both of these memorial causes with this important training."
