Our guest speaker last week was Captain Andy Veath from the Cary Fire Protection District. Captain Veath updated the membership on current events and activities at the district. Founded over 100 years ago, the fire district is a separate entity from the Village of Cary. It provides protection for fire, rescue and life ambulance services to over 35,000 residents in the Cary area. 
Community involvement is an important aspect at the district. Most notable are the Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) classes that are open to the public. Classes are held on the first Wednesday of the month but do require pre-registration, which can be done by visiting their website. The classes teach adult, child and infant CPR as well as techniques in choking incidents and how to use an Automatic External Defibrillation device. To learn more about the services offered by the Fire District, visit their website at www.
