The Dansville Central School District is empowering its entire school community to save lives with the award-winning Mobilize Rescue System thanks to a generous donation by Ramsey Constructors, Inc. and John Shea. The donation includes three Comprehensive Rescue Systems, six Public Access Rescue Stations, and enables the school to distribute the Mobilize Rescue App to students, staff, and faculty willing to act as Good Samaritans while EMS is en route.
"We live in a rural community with limited resources," said Paul Alioto, the Superintendent at Dansville CSD. "We have two ambulances, and if they are both on call we need to wait for the county to give us aid. I view these kits as an empowerment tool for our school... as long as high school students have a cell phone they will have access to the (Mobilize Rescue) app."

In response to the Department of Homeland Security’s Stop the Bleed and Until Help Arrives initiatives, schools across the country are implementing public access bleeding control equipment and training, and the Mobilize Rescue System provides an unparalleled opportunity for schools to empower every single person to save lives. The new technology provides ‘just-in-time’ training to help a bystander, with or without training, to walk through the steps necessary assess, manage, and monitor life-threatening medical emergencies like severe bleeding, cardiac arrest, seizures, and more.
"Training enough staff and faculty members to save lives is one of the biggest obstacles that schools face in preparing for medical emergencies,” said Guy Gioeli, Director of Training and Education at Mobilize Rescue Systems. "The Mobilize Rescue App eliminates that obstacle by providing a simple, effective means of putting life-saving knowledge into the hands of willing bystanders.”
Since studies have shown that the effectiveness of CPR/AED training decreases over time (92% of participants failed the hands-on skills exam one year after training), having an app with a ‘just-in-time’ refresher course provides a valuable fail-safe for educators working with students with unknown medical problems.
"Medical emergencies can happen anytime, and schools need to be prepared,” said Alioto. "We believe that the Mobilize Rescue System will be a fantastic addition to our safety program, particularly in areas that are more susceptible than others during emergencies like in stairwells, shop classes, recreational areas, and our school buses.”
