More than 2 million people trained by CPR units donated by new-car dealers since 1975.
The training program of the National City Fire Department was greatly enhanced today when Frank Motors, in partnership with the National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation, presented a Rescue Anne CPR Unit, a grant for a CPR Training Program. Department Director, Frank Parra, Chief Battalion Silva and other firefighters from the National City Fire Department arrived at the Frank Toyota showroom to receive the award.

“If the right kind of treatment can be given to a victim within seconds after he or she is stricken, the chances are good that the life can be saved,” said Jim Fornaca, President of Frank Motors.

There has been an increase in the number of survivors from ventricular fibrillation as a result of increased CPR training across the country. The training typically takes three to five hours of intensive practice and lectures. Frank Motors is looking forward to working with the National City Fire Department in this training.In accepting the CPR training unit, Frank Parra, Department Director said they plan train a great deal of people each year.Since NADA’s Foundation’s Medical Grants program began in 1975, more than 4,600 CPR training units with a value of about $3 million people have been trained on CPR units donated by new-car dealers.

Frank Motors was honored to present this grant to the National City Fire Department. Thank you to all the National City Firefighters for their hard work and dedication to keeping this community safe.
