Austin and Albert Lea residents can save 20 percent on American Red Cross first aid and CPR/AED training classes.

“Emergencies occur every day, but with travel, extra stress and large gatherings, people are even more susceptible to accidents and illnesses during the holiday,” said Elaine Hansen, executive director of the Freeborn-Mower chapter of the Red Cross. “Make sure your family and household members have the skills and confidence to act in an emergency until help arrives.”

Call 1-800-REDCROSS or go to for course schedules and to register. Use HOLIDAY0113 as a coupon code.
