Community Outreach Program
N.E.T Solution's Community Outreach Programs
We believe that CPR is a lifesaving skill that everyone ought to know. We also believe that every public building, supermarket, airport, and shopping mall should have an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and people that know how to use it. These are two of the reasons N.E.T Solutions is building our Community Outreach programs.
HEARTSafe Communities and Workplaces
The American Heart Association has worked with state health departments to develop criteria to qualify cities, towns, and workplaces as “HEARTSafe” Communities and Workplaces. These qualifiers include ensuring that there are AEDs in publicly accessible location, a percentage of the population has been trained in CPR, and that plans are in place for emergencies. N.E.T Solutions has assisted several towns and workplaces in acheiving this designation. Contact us if your community or workplace is interested in becoming HEARTSafe.
AED Sales and Service
For every minute that defibrillation is delayed, even with good CPR, a victim of cardiac arrest loses approximately 10% of their chance of survical. The National Fire Protection Association recommends that fire services have a 5 minute or less response time, however, in many communities that is simply not possible due to distance in rural settings or with volunteer agencies that depend on responders to come from their homes. Needless to say, the chance of survival for a witnessed cardiac arrest with CPR trained bystanders nearby is not very good if there is no AED nearby.
For this reason, N.E.T Solutions has developed relationships with the major Automated External Defibrillator manufacturers to provide the best pricing for AED units that are deployed by our clients. Contact us for a free consultation and AED quote.
CPR in Schools
One of the best ways to ensure that everyone is familiar with CPR is by providing hands-on training using a manikin and AED as part of the high school health curriculum. Many states have implemented a CPR in Schools law that requires just this. N.E.T Solutions has developed a CPR in Schools program that instructor training to high school to staff & students for discounted prices.
Our CPR in Schools program exceeds the requirements stated in the newly signed Virginia law. We look forward to working with school districts in our service area to get their students prepared for emergencies.
