Providing emergency care is of utmost importance in a society, whether the one responding be an average citizen or a highly trained professional. Several classes are beginning this summer in Sandhills Community College Continuing Education’s Public Safety division.

These classes require face-to-face interaction. CDC recommendations and precautions for a safe environment will be stringently followed. The number of students in a classroom has been reduced to allow for distancing and students are required to wear a face/mouth covering when on campus.
