Liberty Elementary

When we “assessed” our community for our Community Health class project, we never expected to have so much fun!  Rich or poor, it turns out not that many people are as prepared for disaster as they’d like to think they are.  Our group of student nurses from National University, in partnership with the American Red Cross, set out to help the students, their families, and the faculty of Liberty Elementary be more prepared.   
We set up a booth at their school carnival and were overwhelmed by the interest and excitement of all who stopped by.  Whether spinning the disaster wheel to test their preparedness knowledge or learning hands-only CPR, our new friends at Liberty Elementary kept us busy and had us laughing all night!  We had such a great time teaching young and old alike how to be prepared in any emergency, be it cardiac arrest, fire, tornado, or even alien or zombie attack!  Thank you Liberty Elementary and American Red Cross; we couldn’t have done this without you!
