The Community Action Alliance in San Ramón plans a short course in emergency medical Spanish for expats so they can communicate with emergency workers in a crisis.
The two-hour seminar will be Friday from 10 a.m. to noon at the local fire station. Green Mountain Academy is sponsoring the course. The location is two blocks east of the PeriMercado directly adjacent to the main Cruz Roja facility, organizers said.
During this seminar participants will learn all the basic Spanish required ensuring that they can receive the best care possible during emergency situations, the Community Action Alliance said.
