West Monroe Employees Are Ready To Save Lives
Updated: Feb 20, 2020
In October, 2019, FB&D’s West Monroe office established a team of employees who have agreed to be trained for emergency situations. Training for members of the “Blue Team” was recently held at the office where members learned basic life saving techniques such as CPR and First Aid, as well as the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
In a medical emergency, the “Blue Team” will assess, manage, and stabilize the care and treatment of an individual, until professional help arrives.
Those completing the first training course included:
Tom Brewster, Civil/Structural Design Lead
Michael Coody, Executive Project Secretary
William Curry, Piping Designer
Joel Haarala, Project Lead
Daniel Pruett, Electrical Specialist
Alex Renaud, Sr. Piping Designer
Barbie Strickland, Instrument Designer
George Strickland, Instrument/Electrical Designer
Chris Tenison, Sr. Piping Designer
Bob Vestal, Control Systems Specialist
Additional training sessions are being planned for all other FB&D offices. Each office, once staffed by trained “Blue Team” members, will be equipped with a “Blue Team Response Bag”, and an AED.
