EXEDY receives a letter of gratitude from the Firefighters Union for donating manikins used in training for the Heimlich maneuver
On May 23rd, 2014, our company received a letter of gratitude from the Hirakata-Neyagawa Firefighters Union Headquarters for donating manikins used in training for the Heimlich maneuver.
A total of four manikins, known as Choking Charlie, were donated for use in learning the Heimlich maneuver. Before receiving them, the Union was able to conduct first-aid training, such as CPR and AED, but since the Heimlich maneuver requires the use of something resembling a human body, they found themselves in a difficult situation without the manikins. They expressed their gratitude by saying that not only will the manikins allow them to complete their first-aid programs, but that they would like them to be actively used to improve their surgical training programs.
