Preparedness Fair at CGH Reinforces Emergency Skills

Monday, July 16th, 2012

On Wednesday, July 18th, Canonsburg Hospital will hold its annual Emergency Preparedness Fair.  Covering a wide range of emergency scenarios, employees will have an opportunity to train and/or refresh their skills. 
Included in this day-long fair are a Poster Display, Fire Safety Training, Fire Extinguisher Training, and use of the Decontamination Tent for mass decontamination of victims exposed to hazardous substances. Also on hand will be the new Canonsburg Hospital Ambulance for employees to see and tour. Led by Mark Grimm, Fire Chief of the North Strabane Fire Department, firemen will volunteer their time to attend and supervise the fire extinguisher training. 
“Hospitals must be prepared to react quickly and efficiently during a crisis, so they can best serve their community,” said Terry Wiltrout, President and CEO of Canonsburg Hospital. “We have procedures and equipment in place that, should the need arise, our staff and medical professionals know exactly how to respond. Though these are skills we hope we will never need to use, by reinforcing them each year, we will be better able to manage an emergency efficiently.”
The Emergency Preparedness Fair will be from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm in McNary Conference Center and the Café Patio.
