June 15, 2011 - Larry D. Blevins of Independence Township taught CPR and first aid for more than 20 years with the U.S. Navy.

Now he offers it to local residents with Lay Responder Training, which he founded last January with Janice Grier and Allene Mack.

"If you need CPR or First Aid training, we offer it in our classroom or yours," Blevins said.

All three of them are American Red Cross certified in CPR, AED, Blood Borne Pathogens and First Aid.

"We developing a marketing plan to get into industry," he said. "Our short-term goal is to reach as many people as we can. In the long term, we want to open a learning institution in health and safety."

They use the latest in training mannequins and equipment.

"They're lifelike and easy to maintain," he said.

Blevins, a native of San Antonio, Texas, was a chief petty officer in the Navy, working in administration and computers, ship-based damage control, and CPR instruction. He retired in 1999.

Since then, he taught high school and working in the telecommunications industry. He volunteered with the Red Cross throughout, teaching CPR and first aid.

"It's a fine organization," he said.

His wife, Elaine Jefferson-Blevins, is also retired from the Navy.

They offer large or small group instruction at work or home. The interactive and hands-on training meets OSHA Best Practices and Guidelines for First Aid Programs.
