  • Cal Fire is Blazing New Lifesaving Trails

    Cal Fire stepped up its lifesaving readiness this month, with a massive effort to deploy 186 new AEDs throughout California.

    Automated External Defibrillators are a vital link in the lifesaving chain of survival – picking up the gap between pre-hospital CPR and the more advanced medical care given to victims of sudden cardiac arrest once they reach the hospital.

    This week the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection took delivery of 93 Defibtech AEDs and placed an order for an additional 93 through an acquisition arrangement with the AED grant program.

    These AEDs will be deployed to Cal Fire's 39 Conservation Camps statewide that house nearly 4,300 inmates and wards. These camps are operated in conjunction with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). Through these cooperative efforts Cal Fire is authorized to operate 196 fire crews year-round. These crews are available to respond to all types of emergencies including wildfires, floods, search and rescue, and earthquakes. When not responding to emergencies, the crews are busy with conservation and community service work projects for state, federal, and local government agencies. Fire crews perform several million hours of emergency response each year, and more on work projects.

    With this new lifesaving equipment, the dedicated, well-trained, emergency response forces can better respond successfully to heart attacks, drownings, and the many other types of emergencies they serve on a daily basis.

    The AED grant program is a corporate sponsored buy-down grant initiative which has placed many thousands of AEDs throughout the US over the past 15 years. Working through corporate sponsorship the AED Grant project helps individuals, social and faith-based groups, as well as public and private entities obtain these Critical Lifesaving Devices at or below what an AED Distributor would pay for them, thereby empowering America toward the goal of deploying AED wherever tragedy may strike. "We could, and have in a few cases, provide 100% free AEDs," explains Amanda Jenkins of the AED Grant program, "but as a zero-profit initiative, making these lifesaving units available at or below normal Distributor cost we are able to able to help launch thousands upon thousands of these simple lifesavers to qualifying individuals, groups, and businesses – rather than just a select few." Sponsored by AED manufacturers including Defibtech, as well as safety companies such as American CPR Training™ and First-Aid-Product.com, the program is now in its 15th year with ever-greater deployments, such as this Cal Fire project, and recent large initiatives with AAA, in addition to several Public Utilities and Indian Reservations – plus thousands of smaller businesses, churches, schools, and individuals.

  • Assembly Line

    PP_blinkDid you know that on this day in 1913 Ford Motor Company instituted the world's very first moving assembly line for the Model-T?

    This occurred at Henry Ford's Highland Park, MI factory. This first assembly line cut down the man-hours required to build a Model-T from twelve hours to two and a half!

    The increase in productivity allowed Ford to accomplish his dream of making, and pricing, a vehicle that is affordable to ordinary consumers. Check out the full article here:

    Prestan Manikins with Light Monitors allows CPR Instructors to perform training in a similar manner, lining up larger groups of students for training. The light monitors both allow the students to view, understand and improve their own CPR practice performance during the hands-on training in the class - but the light monitors also allow an Instructor to know from across the room if a bystander learning CPR is performing CPR at the correct rate, depth and ratio required for most effective lifesaving!

    Prestan manikins are the present and future of CPR Training manikins with their revolutionary CPR Rate Monitor that allows for instant feedback to both instructor and student regarding the rate of chest compressions. The visual feedback from the CPR Rate Monitor gives students a real life feel of delivering 100 compressions per minute. You add on a clicker sound as the chest is pushed to the appropriate depth, allowing them to experience the true force needed to deliver real life chest compressions and the option to teach with a jaw thrust maneuver.

    PP_Feedback

    Prestan Professional manikins are definitely in a class of their own. Prestan Professional manikins are some of the more realistic to the eye and the touch on the market. We offer Adult, Child and Infant size manikins that all have their own unique features that keep to what they are suppose to represent. With the clamshell design that makes it very easy to change out lung bags to Prestan's CPR Rate Monitor that allows for instant feedback to both instructor and student regarding the rate of chest compression, Prestan manikins are in a class of their own in regard to innovative and ingenious features and design. They are available in single or multi-pack for class training purposes and also available in three different colors.

  • CPR & AED Awareness

    June is CPR & AED Awareness Month

    Learn CPR Now! Learn CPR Now!

    American CPR Training™ encourages all of our responsible and conscientious clients to help us support and promote National CPR & AED Awareness Week.

    By participating in the program, we can raise the public awareness regarding Sudden Cardiac Arrest and increase the chance of survival by having at least one person in each household trained and an employee for each shift and every department trained in CPR and the use of an AED.

    Start Planning Now! Will YOU work with us to promote CPR and AED training in your community?

    In 2008, Congress designated the first week of June for observation of National CPR / AED Awareness Week, with the goal of encouraging all states, cities and towns to establish organized programs which provide CPR and AED training to the public. We at American CPR Training™ realize that not everyone can arrange a class or promote CPR & AED Awareness the first week (especially with Memorial Day cutting into this week) so we've made it our policy since 2008 to promote CPR & AED Awareness Month.
