Kossufh Leads State In First Aid Awards Through Red Cross trained instructors, the American Red Cross chapter in Algona has brought safety services to a considerable number of people in the county during the past year. 736 water safety certificates were issued to pupils from the six pools in the county. There are now seven authorized first aid instructors in the county who volunteered their services this past year. Through their efforts, Mrs. Robert Kollasch, chairman, who has taught the major portion of the group herself, reports that 762 certificates were issued In 1967 to students, ambulance drivers, school bus drivers, policemen, firemen, housewives and rescue unit attendants. Though John McDlvltt, state safety service representative of A.R.C. in Des Moines, has stated that the Kossuth county chapter has taken the lead in the state by issuing more first aid certificates than any county, it will be possible to Increase that number even more this year, as there are now three more high schools on the list where Mrs, Kollasch is generously volunteering her instruction. We are now bringing first aid courses to students In eight high schools and hope to add the two remaining schools by 1969. All instruction benefits the civil defense program as well.
