On Wednesday, June 12, GCADA presented Florence Fire & EMS with a CPR training manikin at our member dealership Airport Ford. General Manager Tom Brinker and GCADA EVP Charlie Howard presented the manikin to Florence Firefighters as part of the Association’s month-long focus on CPR & AED Awareness.
Florence will train Firefighters on the CPR manikin, but will also use it to train members of the public. The more people trained in CPR, the more likely a bystander will be ready to administer the lifesaving technique in the event of a cardiac arrest. The presentation was covered by Channel 9–check out their story featuring an interview with EMS Coordinator Lt. Eric Siemer!
Each year during June, GCADA focuses on the importance of knowing how to perform CPR and use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). June 1-7 kicks off the activities with CPR & AED Awareness Week, but throughout the month our friends at Spectrum air a public service announcement. This short video features GCADA President Greg Holman and American Red Cross Regional CEO Stephanie Byrd and encourages people in Greater Cincinnati to get trained.
