Car dealers donate CPR units

The mannequins were presented by Sligh, who represented the National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation, which provided the units after the Holly Springs department applied for them earlier this year. According to Hill, they represent an $800 value. He said the units are helpful in teaching volunteers proper techniques for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and providing opportunities for practice repetitions.‘These CPR training units will help save lives and give reassurance and security to those trained,’ the foundation wrote in correspondence forwarding the units to Holly Springs. The automobile dealers foundation also provides assistance to disabled children and military veterans through its Canine Companions program, as well as financial assistance to dealer employees affected by natural disasters.
