Honoring Gabrielle Giffords

Honoring Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords

The tragedy in Tucson is a reminder of how important it is for everyone to know first aid and CPR. The Cincinnati Region of the American Red Cross will be joining more than 100 Red Cross chapters nationwide to participate in Save-a-Life Saturday to honor Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and all those involved in the Tucson tragedy.
“As this tragic event unfolded, several bystanders knew these vital skills, which helped save the lives of many victims, including Congresswoman Giffords,” said Gail McGovern, president and CEO of the American Red Cross. “This inspired us to offer this training in order to help save lives in communities nationwide.”
