ProRangers in First Responder Training

Valley Forge National Historical Park is hosting a weekend First Responder course for the ProRangers. The course is taught by Ranger John Waterman, a paramedic and fantastic instructor. The course is designed to teach First Responders advanced first aid techniques. They will learn how to sustain life, prevent further injuries and the consequences of further injury until more advanced medical personnel arrive. This course includes the newest First Aid & CPR Guidelines (2010) and meets Federal regulations and a variety of provincial/territorial requirements for Advanced First Aid. First Responder certification is valid for 3 years and includes CPR Level HCP and Automated External Defibrillation.

The ProRangers are doing very well in the class and will take their National Certification test soon.

ProRanger Erin Langeheine and the Temple Rugby team played William & Mary this past weekend in Bridgeport, PA. The teams were tied 5-5 at the half and the Owls kept possession of the ball for most of the game. The Owls scored half way through the second half and went on to win the game 10-5. The Owls will have two days of playoffs next weekend at Shippensburg University, with the first game being against George Washington. Go Owls!
