Demonstrations included: hands only CPR, how to use a fire extinguisher, proper bike helmet fittings and how to swim out of a riptide. The Assemblywoman believes part of her job as an elected representative is to present information to her constituents so that they will have the necessary tools to help ensure safer communities.
