Contractors Freshen Up on Heart-Saver Training

Construction professionals working with The Pangere Corporation at the Community Healthcare Stroke and Rehabilitation Center jobsite took a refresher course from the Crown Point Fire Department on AED and CPR heart-saver training. Mastering proper CPR techniques and learning how to use a defibrillator can mean the difference between life and death in an emergency, which is all the more important given construction is now ramping up at the site. Currently, about 50 people are actively working at the location, but by this time next year that number will be about tripled.
