Masters uses emergency training in life-threatening situation
When faced with a life-threatening situation, people have varying reactions. For Hannah Masters, a Criminal Justice student and employee with the Campus Security Program at Southwest Wisconsin Technical College, she was faced with such a scenario recently. A Kendall, Wisconsin native, Masters was visiting her family during spring break when she was called into action. While driving in a rural area near her home with her boyfriend and her brother, a man ran into the road and flagged down the vehicle. As Masters explains it, the man was panicked and describing that his wife was choking. Her training as part of the Criminal Justice program, as well as the Campus Security Program, kicked in. She instructed her brother to call 911 immediately and she expected to use CPR for the first time momentarily. She was CPR certified as part of the Campus Security Program training.
