500-Family Goal Set for CPR Training

The American Red Cross is sponsoring an all-day CPR training session March 21 for families in Ventura County, organizers said.

Red Cross officials in Ventura County hope to register more than 500 families for the event, which begins at 9 a.m. at the Ventura County Fairgrounds' Agricultural Building. Classes will begin every half-hour and will last three to four hours, said Red Cross spokeswoman Carol Becker.

Classes also are available in Spanish, she said.

Cost is $10 per person for those making advanced reservations and $12 for those who register the day of the event. Preregistration must take place by March 16.
