New-car dealers throughout the country devote much of their time and money to the development or projects that enrich the lives of people in their communities. In cities across the country, tens of thousands of citizens have been taught how to provide CPR on training units donated by new-car dealers because of this program. CPR training units help save lives and give comfort and security to those trained.
The donation is part of the National Automobile Dealers Association’s community outreach program. NADA’s program is administered locally by GNYADA. The units allow personnel to train area residents on the correct way to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), allowing those trained to save the lives of countless people who suffer heart attacks and are in need of immediate attention. Nationwide, since 1975, franchised automobile dealers have donated thousands of manikins worth more than $4 million on which more than two million people have been trained.
