For two days, students at Northview High School received first-hand accounts on emergency response.

On Friday, Cody Barnard and Mike Rost, both members of the Posey Township Volunteer Fire Department discussed the proper method of Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) with students in Bethany Jones' health class.

"We started last semester," Jones told The Brazil Times. "We're hoping to do it each semester."

The two firefighters also paid the students a visit Thursday to discuss first aid.

Students watched a video on proper CPR methods Friday. In between the video, Barnard -- who is a certified instructor -- addressed CPR by using props.

He also shared personal experiences with the students.
