“It’s a great honor to present the Roslyn Hook & Ladder Company with this life-saving CPR unit,” said Andrew Weinstock, executive vice president of Biener Audi, a part of the community since 1929. “They do such an incredible job protecting our community; it’s the least we can do.”
The units allow personnel to train area residents on the correct way to provide CPR, allowing those trained to save the lives of countless people who suffer heart attacks and are in need of immediate attention.
CPR training units help save lives and give comfort and security to those trained. Nationwide, since 1975, franchised automobile dealers have donated thousands of manikins worth more than $4 million on which more than 2 million people have been trained.
Biener Audi is a member of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association (GNYADA) which administers the CPR donations on behalf of the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Charitable Foundation. The donation is part of NADA’s community outreach program, administered locally by GNYADA.
Senator Jack Martins and Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel officiated at the event.
