The Central Maryland Chapter of the Association of Continuity Professionals would like to invite you to our November 14 meeting in Hunt Valley. We’re very excited about this month’s presentation!  Here’s a synopsis:

Emergencies in the Workplace and Beyond, Jeremy Gruber, Rescue One Training for Life
Part One: AED’s in the Workplace: “A Shocking Decision”
Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are an important life-saving technology and can play a role in treating workplace cardiac arrest. This session will focus on the importance of AEDs in the workplace and how personnel trained in CPR and the use of AEDs can dramatically increase survival rates.
Part Two: Bleeding Control
You cannot predict a bleeding event, but you can prepare for one. Mass casualty events such as intentional acts of violence, terrorism, or natural disasters require certain preparedness and response. A bleeding control program puts life-saving technology in your hands, giving you the power to treat multiple injuries should an event occur. This presentation will review the fundamentals of treating bleeding control emergencies.
The meeting will begin at 8:00 am with a complimentary breakfast and networking session and will conclude by 10:30 amPlease click here for more information and to register: https://acp_nov14.eventbrite.com.
