First Response Advantage, Inc. has provided emergency planning and safety services to facilities and corporations in the New York metro area since 2001. Our services range from customizing an emergency response plan for a public access defibrillation (PAD) program to providing certification training in a variety of courses in Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and First Aid. We train a broad range of individuals from lay personnel to health care providers. All our instructors are authorized American Heart Association training providers and have outstanding experience as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Paramedics in the New York City EMS system.
Our services increase workplace safety, facilitate regulatory compliance and can enable you to qualify for a liability insurance deduction reducing your premiums by up to 20% annually. Recent legislation has been enacted requiring several facilities and organizations to participate in the PAD program. These include NYS public and charter schools, health clubs with memberships of over 500 participants and all New York State public institutions. In addition, some municipalities have enacted requirements for nursing home and adult care facilities to obtain PAD certification. First Response Advantage can provide your organization with the tools needed to comply with these state regulatory mandates quickly and cost efficiently.
The American Heart Association estimates about 220,000 people die each year from sudden cardiac arrest. This equates to 600 people a day or 25 people per hour. These statistics make sudden cardiac arrest the most common cause of death in the United States today.
Interventions such as CPR and Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) greatly reduce death from a heart attack or sudden cardiac arrest. Almost anyone is able to perform CPR with training, and health organizations advocate the development of CPR skills throughout the general public. When administered properly CPR and AED can save lives. CPR is a practical skill and needs professional instruction followed up by regular practice on a resuscitation mannequin to gain and maintain full competency. Training should be repeated at the end of the two year certification period.
First Response Advantage can outfit your organization to meet the new NYS health requirements as well as train your staff so that they have the skills needed to act in an emergency. Our goal is to offer the finest quality courses and provide an optimal learning atmosphere.
Courses can be scheduled to fit your needs to maximize convenience. Course participants receive certification card upon course completion. In addition, most of our courses qualify for continuing medical education credits (CME) which are needed by many health care professionals to maintain their licensure.
