Community Care of West Virginia donates AED to West Virginia Wesleyan College

BUCKHANNON, West Virginia – Community Care of West Virginia recently donated an Automated External Defibrillator to West Virginia Wesleyan College, adding to the number of AEDs on campus and enhancing access to life-saving equipment in the event of an emergency.

The AED is located in Haymond Hall which is home to several academic departments as well as the College’s Learning Center.

Trish Collett, PA-C and Chief Executive Officer of CCWV, said, “Community Care of West Virginia has a wonderful, collaborative relationship with West Virginia Wesleyan College, and we are proud to support this institution in its mission to provide a safe and nurturing environment for its students, faculty, and staff. As a healthcare organization, we understand the vital importance of having immediate access to life-saving equipment, especially in settings where young adults congregate and engage in various activities. Sudden cardiac events can occur without warning, and having an AED on-site can be the difference between life and death. We hope that this AED will provide peace of mind to the Wesleyan community and serve as a valuable resource for any potential emergency situations.”

Dr. Dan Martin, professor and chair of Exercise Science and Athletic Training, has been very active in CPR/AED training for many years. He is a member of the City Heart Safe committee. Martin also takes care of checking all the campus AEDs on a regular basis.

“I am very appreciative of the support we have received from CCWV as we continue to add AEDs in strategic locations around our campus,” Martin said.
