US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Quonset Point, RI

CPR, Portable Defibrillator, Basic Life Support Training


NCBC Battalion Sea Cadets hosted their shipmates from FALCON Division in Providence for a joint training exercise in emergency life support, including CardioPulmonary Resucitation (CPR) and the proper use of the portable electronic defibrillator. The Cadets trained using the Medtronic LIFEPAK® 500T Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Training System, with Laerdal CPR Training mannikins as the "victims" for the training. The training was led by Bruce Stump, the Commanding Officer of NIMITZ Division in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and Pete Durso, a staff officer with NIMITZ. The training day was supported by American Medical Response, Inc (AMR) - the Sea Cadets from NCBC and FALCON are very appreciative of the opportunity they provided. Our training location was at the Parish Center, St. Bernard Church, in North Kingstown. We are grateful to St. Bernard's for their support with this training day.
