Comanche Nation Housing Authority Employees Receive First Aid CPR AED Training

Monday, July 09, 2012 - Lawton, OK

The Comanche Nation Housing Authority recently completed the American Heart Association (AHA) Heart saver First Aid CPR AED course held onsite at the housing authority facility.  The course was 8 hours long and consisted of instruction on how to treat minor first aid emergencies as well as how to perform CPR on adults, children and infants. The course also allowed the employees to gain experience with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). 

Norman Leveille, Safety Officer at the CNHA, was responsible for scheduling employees for the various training dates and coordination with instructor Kendall Washburn, RN, BSN, REMT-P with the Indian Health Services department at the Lawton Indian Hospital.

Mr. Leveille explained, "The knowledge gained in this course will not only benefit our employees while on the job but it will also allow them to put their training to use in their own homes should the need ever arise."

When asked about the quality of the training, Mr. Leveille said, "I have been involved with public safety for close to 30 years and have taken numerous CPR courses and I can say this is one of the most comprehensive courses I have taken and our instructor presented the material in a very knowledgeable method."

Eighty percent of the employees were able to attend the training and all attendees received certification cards that are valid for two years.
