Training equipment unneeded by a local business is a welcome addition to materials available to students at Warren County Career Center.

On Tuesday, Trevor Rodgers and Jacob Papalia of the Whirley Drinkworks safety department presented three Little Anne CPR Training Manikins, several AED trainers, and assorted first aid training material and equipment to shops at the career center.

Students Chloie Sliter and De’Jania Duval from the protective services class and Laney Budd and Bianca Villella from health and medical assisting accepted the equipment on behalf of their shops.

The equipment will be available and used by any shops that include CPR and/or first aid training as part of the curriculum.

“We have some programs coming up and we will integrate this equipment,” Protective Services Teacher Mike Noe said.

He expects the equipment and materials to be particularly helpful as the new early childhood development class opens for the 2023-24 school year.

“It’s hard to start a program when you come in with nothing,” Noe said.
