WEST ORANGE, NJ — ADP of Roseland recently donated a brand new CPR/AED (automated external defibrillator) instructional kit valued at $649 to West Orange High School.

Katie Kinney, CPR Schools Manager for the American Heart Association (AHA), contacted Health and district Physical Education Supervisor Kevin Alvine in October to offer the free kit for the 12th grade CPR program. Between 10 and 20 students can utilize the training at the same time.

The kit contains:

• 10 Mini Anne Plus inflatable manikins 

• 10 individual carry bags 

• 1 hand pump for manikin inflation 

• 5 practice-while-watching training DVDs 

• 1 Facilitator Guide 

• 1 Facilitator Binder that contains the Lesson Plan, pre and post-test, and additional supplementary material 

• 10 AED training simulators 

• 2 mesh collection and storage bags 

• 10 replacement airways 

• 10 replacement facemasks 

• 50 manikin wipes

To date, only one athlete has needed CPR at West Orange High School. In the late 1990’s, former athletic trainer Ozzie Diaz was required to perform CPR on a baseball player from Clifford Scott who was struck by lightning in centerfield. The efforts of Diaz and a WOHS parent saved the player’s life.

“I am always appreciative to the many outside organizations wanting to help our students, teachers, and our programs," said Alvine. “It is my privilege and honor to help provide our students and teachers with whatever they need to make our program one of the best.”

Alvine said that the donation AHA and ADP is lifesaving and will continue to prepare the students with valuable lifesaving skills that could potentially help others in their school, in their families and in the community.
