GLENDALE ? Ian Nunya didn't think much about the loud lightning crash that occurred on a late afternoon in Northern Arizona. That changed when his college roommate, Eric Carlos, looked out the window of their fourth-floor dormitory on the Northern Arizona University campus in Flagstaff, Ariz., around 3:30 p.m. Sept. 10 and saw that somebody had been badly injured. Nunya, who graduated from St. Francis High last spring after competing on the school's football and track and field programs, sprung into action.

When Jose Gomez began his career as an athletic trainer, he set out to not only help people through his first-aid and CPR training, but he also decided to pass along his knowledge to others who wanted to learn life-saving skills. Gomez, 47, started working in the field of sports medicine at schools around the county in the 1970s. About 20 years ago, he landed a job at the athletic department at Glendale Community College. ?In 1974, I taped my first ankle, and I?ve been taping ever since,?

Janine Marnien "OK, what's the first thing you do?" Glendale Unified Health Service Coordinator Lynda Burlison asked Brent Dormond during a CPR training session Thursday at Crescenta Valley High School. "Check to see if my scene's safe," said Brent, a freshman at the school. "That's right. Then what do you do?" Burlison asked, prompting Brent as he took his CPR practical exam, which he quickly passed. Brent and about 400 other Crescenta Valley High students learned the American Red Cross method of adult CPR this week.

When Assistant City Atty. Dennis Schuck collapsed because of a heart attack, he was fortunate others in City Hall knew CPR and were able to help. Considering it had been six years since Glendale had held a clinic for its general staff, it was lucky that attorneys and city managers do more than push papers. Schuck is around today thanks -- in no small part -- to their help. The city has decided not to rely on luck in the future and is planning courses for all 1,700 employees.

Gretchen Hoffman Chip Cabana doesn't consider himself an overly religious man, but he has no explanation other than God's intervention for how he saved a neighbor's son who almost drowned. Cabana's last CPR class was 27 years ago, but when he heard Klara Arakelian's screams and saw her toddler floating in the pool July 6, he jumped into action. He hopped out of the RV he was tinkering around in -- the window of which looks over the Arakelians' pool -- and ran around the fence.
