Fred Basch, a Co-President of The Village Temple, recognized the importance of preparedness for an organization where around 130 students can be on the premises at any given moment.
"We realized we needed to review and address a wide range of security and safety issues,” said Executive Director, Sandy Albert. "Purchasing the Mobilize Rescue System provides us with peace of mind that if something happens, we are prepared with state of the art safety technology, and we feel that families will be reassured that we are looking out for everyone.”
The Village Temple installed a Public Access Rescue Station to make bleeding control and airway management supplies readily available during an emergency.
Anyone willing to act as an ‘immediate responder’ at The Village Temple will be able to download the Mobilize Rescue App, using a code unique to The Village Temple, and will have access to life-saving knowledge.
In the event of an emergency, all a bystander needs to do is to grab one of the Individual Public Access Kits (iPAKs) from the Rescue Station and launch the Mobilize Rescue App.
By following the instructions on their personal device, the bystander will be able to manage severe bleeding, cardiac arrest, seizures and more while the ambulance is on the way.
"We are so excited to be working with The Village Temple to help them keep their community safe,” said Matt Ort, Director of Sales at Mobilize Rescue Systems. "Civilians play such an important role in helping organizations respond to critical medical emergencies, and we’re excited that the just-in-time training in the Mobilize Rescue App will be made available to anyone willing to save a life.”
Since 2015, the Mobilize Rescue System has been deployed by federal and law enforcement agencies, security and investigations agencies, K-12 schools and universities, public and private organizations, and is now available in Canada through a partnership with Safecross First Aid, LTD. The Mobilize Rescue System has already been used to manage multiple medical emergencies across the country.
"One of our congregants that works at NYU told us about the Mobilize Rescue System, and within days of hearing about it someone fainted at services, and someone fell outside our premises and was bleeding heavily. We called an ambulance, but both these incidents reinforced the need for the Mobilize Rescue System. It was almost like a sign.”
