In January, 33 of our employees from 13 branches completed a successful certification training on HeartSaver First Aid, AED, and CPR.
The full day training, led by Delta Ambulance, encompassed everything from administering epinephrine, putting on a simple band-aid to applying a tourniquet, from tending to a broken bone to helping a victim with a stroke or heart ailment. This training, conducted in-house since 2018, also reviewed the use of an AED and performing CPR.
All 33 volunteers will receive a course completion card, valid for two years.
