Ninety-three GCADA members created a CPR Manikin Donation Program in 2013 to provide civic, non-profit and public service organizations such as community centers, fire departments, hospitals, police departments, schools and similar organizations with training aids to help educate community members in lifesaving CPR / AED procedures for infants, children and adults.
GCADA members have donated more than $42,500 in training manikins to more than 45 Greater Cincinnati organizations through the program. GCADA additionally promotes the annual CPR and AED Awareness Week in June through a public service announcement and social media campaign.
