PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla., Oct. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Johns Creek Fire Department and the City of Johns Creek (GA) community have received a $3200 donation from the ValMark Global Gift Fund. The donation has enabled the Johns Creek Public Safety Foundation to expand cardiopulmonary resuscitation / automated external defibrillator training classes in the City of Johns Creek through the purchase of an additional 49 CPR/AED training and practice manikins.

Steve Broadbent is Chairman of the Johns Creek Public Safety Foundation, Johns Creek Mayor Pro-Tem and Managing Director at Fulcrum Partners Atlanta, a nationwide executive benefits advisory that has been a member of ValMark Financial Group since 2011. Broadbent observed, “While the Johns Creek Fire Department has offered quarterly CPR/AED classes for many years, the limited number of training manikins has meant restricted class sizes. The generous donation made possible by ValMark Financial Group, through the ValMark Global Gift Fund, allows the Fire Department to train more than twice as many people in each class.
“The new manikins also meet the new American Heart Association requirement for audio feedback from the manikins due for implementation in 2019. The Johns Creek community and its dedicated firefighters are very appreciative of this donation.”
Pointing out the long-term lifesaving potential of additional manikins, Fire Chief Jeff Hogan added, “We know that this gift has the potential to save lives as starting CPR before the arrival of emergency personnel and the use of AED machines can increase the chance of survival.”
Registration for the next Johns Creek Fire Department CPR/AED training class will be posted at www.johnscreekga.gov.
