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.
