In addition to the optimal placement of AEDs, there must be ongoing supervision, maintenance, and training for an AED program to remain effective and save lives as it is intended to.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 20, 2014
EMC CPR & Safety Training, LLC is pleased to announce the expansion of its AED sales and program management services to Connecticut. EMC is an authorized provider of American Heart Association CPR/AED training. Based in New York City, EMC has been offering Connecticut CPR certification for several years. Due to popular demand, EMC is now providing its acclaimed AED program management services and selling brand-name AEDs to customers in Connecticut. Cities in Connecticut that EMC serves include Hartford, Danbury, Waterbury, New Haven, Bridgeport, Westport, Norwalk, and Stamford, among others.
EMC provides AED medical oversight and program management to organizations in Connecticut, ensuring that their AED programs are fully compliant with AED laws. According to Connecticut AED law, certain establishments, such as schools and public golf courses, are required to have AEDs. Topics related to AEDs that state laws address include training standards for AED use and Good Samaritan protection. Every AED program in Connecticut is required to incorporate the following elements:
- Medical oversight
- Written safety plan
- Adherence to the AED manufacturer’s maintenance requirements
- Regular testing of AEDs
- Monthly records of AED maintenance
AEDs are medical devices, so a physician’s prescription is needed to purchase them. A medical director plays an important role in an AED program. He or she provides medical leadership, ensures that an AED program is medically sound, and oversees the medical direction provided in the program. As part of its AED medical oversight services in Connecticut, EMC provides both the initial physician prescription for the AED purchase as well as ongoing medical direction.
EMC Owner and National Director of Training Stephanie Duehring said, “In addition to the optimal placement of AEDs, there must be ongoing supervision, maintenance, and training for an AED program to remain effective and save lives as it is intended to. At EMC, we offer comprehensive AED program management services that allow customers to establish and maintain a successful AED program. Our program management services make it fast and simple to keep your AED program legally compliant.”
EMC partners with organizations in Connecticut to develop customized and comprehensive AED programs. In addition to helping customers select a unit that best fits their needs, EMC determines how many AEDs are required, provides AED maintenance and recordkeeping, and offers CPR/AED training for personnel. EMC continuously monitors its customers’ AED programs to ensure compliance. EMC also sells high-quality AEDs from leading brands like Cardiac Science, Defibtech, HeartSine, Philips, and ZOLL.
