CPRescue Provides CPR and First Aid Training to United States Post Office (USPS)



LOS ANGELES, CA, July 06, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ — CPRescue announced in late June 2013, that it has gone into contract with the United States Postal Service (USPS) to provide CPR and first aid training for their employees at the City of Industry location in the Los Angeles area. CPRescue is to provide training for employees on all three (3) work shifts. Though CPRescue has contracts with several California State Departments, this is the first time it has landed a Federal entity.

The training the USPS Emergency Response Team (ERT) received will help them to protect and assist other employees, in case of a natural disaster, a major accident or a violence incident. Each of these ERT members received training in many first aid skills sets such as how to treat burns, cuts, seizures, strokes, choking, heart attacks, poisonings and how to perform CPR.

By completing this safety training, CPRescue helped the United States Postal Service fulfill the Federal OSHA safety requirement 29 CFR-1910.151. This Federal safety standard requires all businesses to provide safety training for their employees, “In the absence of an infirmary, clinic, or hospital in near proximity to the workplace which is used for the treatment of all injured employees, a person or persons shall be adequately trained to render first aid. Adequate first aid supplies shall be readily available.”

CPRescue looks to continue and expand its relationship with the United States Postal Service in providing CPR and first aid training to their other California locations.

Established in 1997 in San Jose, CPRescue quickly became a leader as a CPR, first aid and AED training vendor for Businesses/Corporations, Healthcare Providers (AHA BLS CPR), in the Hospitality Industry and for licensed Childcare Providers (EMSA approved). Since then we have expanded our service areas to include all of Northern and Southern California. For further information, please visit our website at www.cprescue.com or call us at 1-888-313-2444.
