To the editor:
Regarding the letter "Student should have gone to ER," which suggested that teachers should have first-aid training: This is an excellent idea. Everyone who works for the city, a school district or a medical facility should be trained in CPR and first aid. It was done in Seattle, and a joke formed around the training: If you trip on a sidewalk in Seattle, 10 people will try to give you CPR whether you need it or not.
