CPAT Network, Inc , Official CPR Trainers for the United Way of Philadelphia, City of Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, and the Philadelphia School District. Supporter of Pulsepoint for Philadelphia(surrounding counties, New Jersey and Delaware
We are a community based charitable organization(501(c) 3) striving to increase public awareness for cardio-pulmonary resuscitation(CPR) training and the need for greater public access for Automatic External Defibrillators(AEDs).
911 trained and experienced paramedics from the Philadelphia Fire Department created this organization with an earnest commitment for saving more lives. As American Heart Association CPR & First AID Instructors, we provide public awareness and CPR/AED training for nursing homes, community groups, churches, schools, all businesses/medical pratices, daycare centers, and individuals. We also help these groups acquire and maintain an AED program.
Our goal is to build a comprehensive life saving network. The crucial components of this network includes your local 911 Emergency Medical Service(EMS), the American Heart Assoc.(AHA), local government, corporate sponsors, community groups and you.
Our motivation stems from our experience of seeing numerous lives being lost. Had someone from the workplace, the school, the church, the recreation center taken the necessary action of performing CPR and having access to an AED more persons would be alive today.
We as a community deserve the best chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest. We extend a special thanks to Pa. State Senator Leanna Washington for her crucial support for providing us the intial financial support to launch our Emergency Medical Health Education Programs throughout the community.
Emergency Medical Health Education & Training is teaching the warning signs of heart attack and stroke. It also includes teaching CPR and /or First AID training. Our goal is to spread this education throughout the community. We have targeted workplaces, community groups, schools, recreation centers, faith-based organizations and job development centers as the best places to implement these programs.
We extend our most sincere gratitude for the financial support and encouragement from the Philadelphia Foundation. This organization has provided the necessary help for us to get started. The Philadelphia Foundation has received CPR training and certification through our organization. We provided them an automatic external defibrillator(AED) program.
Does your organization need an (AED)defibrillator program. Allow us to provide you a defibrillator and the necessary training. Please contact us today at 215-669-5567. Go to our facebook page(facebook.com/getcpr)
