AED Use Saved Life

Mar 31, 2016

Waukesha Store Team Presented with Citizen Award for Saving Customer's Life

We are extremely proud of our Waukesha team as they were recently honored for their help in saving one of our customer's lives. Upon hearing of a customer who needed assistance, a number of associates acted quickly, notified emergency services, performed CPR, and utilized the store’s AED machine in an attempt to resuscitate the customer.  Due to the fantastic actions of the team, the customer regained consciousness and was even able to communicate with the EMTs before being taken away for further evaluation.

Blain's Farm & Fleet made the decision several years ago to place an AED machine at our Home Office, Distribution Center, and in every one of our stores as well as to provide our teams with the training needed to use them if necessary.  These decisions, along with our great associates, have been credited with saving the lives of several associates and customers throughout the past five years. 

We cannot begin to explain how proud we are of our Waukesha staff, and all of our associates who have helped save lives in the past.
