CPR Manikin Program extends to Oxford, Ohio with Fire Department donation

Our CPR Manikin Program continued last week with a four-manikin donation to the Oxford, Ohio Fire Department at Northgate Chrysler Jeep Dodge with Pete and Andy Pannier, GCADA’s Charlie Howard and Oxford, Ohio Fire Department Captain Chris Johns.
“We were awarded four manikins we’ll be able to use for the community CPR classes we offer. 
“We just held a large class last week with Miami Univ. Navy ROTC with about 22 students and we’ll use these quite a few times throughout the year,” Capt. Johns said.

GCADA members have now donated more than $40,000 in equipment to more than 40 organizations through the manikin program since 2013.   The GCADA helps fulfill its mission of promoting public safety by providing members opportunities to donate manikins to Greater Cincinnati non-profit organizations such as hospitals, civic groups, fire departments, schools and American Red Cross chapters.   

Manikins are provided at no cost to enable organizations educate and train community members in CPR procedures for infants, children and adults.

GCADA complements its manikin program by partnering with Greater Cincinnati / Dayton Red Cross chapters and Spectrum to illustrate the importance of CPR training by producing an an annual Public Service Announcement that airs during CPR and AED Awareness Week.
