Kumler Collision & Automotive Earns First Heart Safe Business Accreditation
July 12, 2013—Fairfield Medical Center (FMC) of Lancaster Ohio, presented Kumler Collision & Automotive with the first Heart Safe Business Accreditation in the nation on June 28.
The accreditation, which is a project of the Snider Community Heart Watch at FMC, is granted to businesses that meet specific criteria designed to ensure the safety of customers and staff who may suffer sudden cardiac arrest.
Kumler met the four criteria necessary to achieve accreditation. The criteria for the accreditation includes a cardiac arrest self-assessment for all employees, 25 percent of workforce trained in CPR, automated external defibrillators (AEDs) located throughout the building, and medical emergency drills conducted once per quarter.
“Being able to see the changes first hand, I am convinced that Kumler is prepared to provide care for a sudden cardiac arrest victim,” said Bob Williams, supervisor of FMC’s cardiovascular services and co-chair of the Snider Community Heart Watch.
