PHILIPSBURG – NV GEBE announced that 66 of its employees have successfully completed CPR, First Aid, and AED trainings that were conducted by WIEMS.
NV GEBE partnered with WIEMS in February to offer these trainings for its employees. The trainings represented the next step forward in promoting and enhancing the company’s vision and mission statements while the main objective is to improve safety amongst its staff who will be able to assist the community.
“This training will better enable the staff to assist in the case of emergency situations,” stated the Managing Board, adding that, “the goal of the training was to help GEBE’s staff and ultimately create positive outcomes for persons who need assistance in emergency situations.” The groups were divided in three and each group attended an intense 8-hour/2-day training.
NV GEBE is currently finalizing subsequent trainings with WIEMS. The next training will be Mass Casualty Incident (MCI), which will teach employees how to deal with mass casualties that can occur in situations such as an explosion, earthquake, hurricane, or large scale accidents. In order for the staff to be able to partake in the MCI training they needed to be CPR certified.
The Managing Board of GEBE encouraged its staff to participate in these trainings as these types of training are essential for job situations and personal lives as well.
