Memo to Fleets: Teach your Staff to Jumpstart a Human Heart
TORONTO — Attention truckers across the Great White North. You’ve just been challenged: Get defibrillators into your rigs and train your drivers to use them.
That’s from one Hugh Heron, president of southern Ontario-based Heathwood Homes and chairman of the MIKEY Network, a charitable organization devoted to placing heart defibrillators in as many public places as possible.
Heron issued the industry challenge this week at the same time as the moving company Two Men and A Truck announced that they’re outfitting each of their 63 trucks with defibrillators and their staff with proper training.
