Employees Prepare for Medical Emergencies

American Heart Association-Certified Trainers Teach Colleagues

While they hope to never need their new-found skills, several Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) and Enterprise Ventures Corporation (EVC) employees are now better equipped to care for victims of certain life-threatening respiratory or cardiac emergencies.

The American Heart Association’s (AHA’s) Family and Friends CPR AED course is made available periodically for employees. The classes take place at the company’s Johnstown, PA, headquarters and are taught by fellow employees who are certified to teach CPR through the AHA:  Deb Neisner, an IT Service Desk technician at CTC, and Nick D’Ambrosia, a coatings technician at EVC.

The program is designed for people with little or no medical training who want to be prepared for an emergency at work or in any setting. Students learn first aid basics, including how and when to administer CPR or use an automated external defibrillator (AED). Those who successfully complete the training receive a certificate, which is valid for two years. A few dozen CTC and EVC employees are currently certified.
