CRC provided CPR, AED and First Aid (CPR/AED/FA) training to Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS). This included providing all necessary personnel, materials, services and incidentals to perform CPR/AED/FA training. In addition, we provided FWS with AED program medical direction and oversight including keeping FWS abreast of all changes in the law (federal, state, local rules and regulations) that impact the program and American Heart Association (AHA) requirements. CRC provided 10 AED units and replacement electrode pads as part of the Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) program.
CRC provides certification training on years required by the Contracting Officer Representative (COR). Upon successfully completing the training, CRC issued certification cards produced by the AHA. Training rosters were provided to the COR listing all responders trained and their completion status, within 2 business days of training completion. All training materials including training booklets, visual aids, training AED, facemasks were provided by CRC. A one manikin per student ratio was also provided so hands-on training can be achieved. The trainer AED used in the hands-on training section of the training is the same brand and type as FWS’ AEDs. Certifications of all training instructors were provided to the COR for their approval. CRC worked with the COR to collect the evaluations and submit them directly to CRC and the COR. The evaluations were not collected by the instructor per CRC’s corporate policy to ensure no information is tampered or altered.
Special medical direction and oversight was provided in support of the AED program. AED prescriptions were prepared and signed by CRC’s Medical Director per the applicable laws for Virginia to receive the AEDs. AED Program protocols were reviewed by CRC including updating the protocols for responding in to a medical emergency as required by individual states. CRC’s medical direction included the development of a system to ensure that the bystanders alerted the authorized responder, so they can reach victims in the critical first minutes after collapse.
