This Labor Day, Beware Bear Attacks and Get Trained

During your manly (or womanly), flannel-covered, outdoorsy adventures this Labor Day weekend, it never hurts to be extra-cautious. These smart lads knew that getting Red Cross training was important, and in the case of being chased by a bear (and other, more common, situations), life-saving. (Looks like Stephen Colbert has been right all along about bears…)

This amusing video from the Santa Cruz Red Cross has a thing or two to teach us.

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend from all of us here at the American Red Cross of Greater Grand Rapids!

  1. In conjunction with the first aid training, everyone going into bear country should carry pepper spray. I recommend Guard Alaska Bear Spray, it is the only one listed with the EPA for all species of bears.
