Equity Staff American Red Cross Certified

On Friday, February 26, Equity Staff in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles became certified by the American Red Cross in CPR, First Aid, and AED. In an effort to promote a safe and healthy workplace, the certification class taught the skills necessary to prevent, recognize, and provide basic care for injuries and sudden illness until advanced medical personnel arrive.

“In the event that a fellow employee, Member, or guest suddenly became ill or suffered an injury, we wanted our employees to have the skills and confidence to respond quickly and responsibly.” –Megann
