AUGUST 30- The Perry Township Fire Department was greatly enhanced this week when Young Trucks, in partnership with the Ohio Automobile Dealers Association (OADA), presented a Baby Anne CPR training unit.

The Perry Township Fire Department is comprised 3 Fire Stations that provide fire and EMS services to nearly 28,000 residents spanning approximately 23 square miles. All 63 personnel are, at a minimum, certified as Firefighters, Emergency Medical Technicians or Paramedics. Department instructors review the American Heart Association guidelines regularly and re-certify all staff every 2 years through both classroom and hands-on instruction. The Perry Township Fire Department currently owns one similar unit and anticipates training approximately 100 people this year thanks to the generous donation from Young Trucks.

Vice President of Young Trucks Ryan Young views this donation as a perfect way to give back to the Firemen and EMS personnel who work to make Perry Township a safer, more desirable place to live:

“Everyone at Young Trucks is very excited for the opportunity to help equip the fire department with the tools necessary to continue to serve our community. Their dedication to the residents, schools, businesses and organizations in our area is humbling, and we're just thankful to be able to play a small role in their continued efforts.”
