Cintas Awards Scholastic Grant Award To Indianapolis School

Stocks in this article: CTAS

Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS), a leader in first-aid and safety products, has named Ben Davis High School a recipient of its 2012 Scholastic Grant Award and furnished the Indianapolis-based school with a complimentary automated external defibrillator (AED) during a special basketball half-time presentation on December 14, 2012. Death from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is the leading cause of non-traumatic mortality in young athletes, according to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association. Cintas selected Ben Davis as part of the company’s efforts to promote continued awareness for schools, churches and other non-profits throughout Indianapolis and surrounding areas.

“Unfortunately, many young adults are unaware that they may have abnormal heart conditions. This leaves them vulnerable to an SCA incident, especially during a sporting event,” said Mark Lahr, ATC- athletic trainer and Physical Education & Health department chair, Ben Davis High School. “We’re thrilled that Cintas has selected our school to receive an AED to improve the mobility of our safety efforts. This unit will be used by our training department to accompany our athletic teams for away games and practices.”

The American Heart Association recommends the use of comprehensive AED programs to increase survival rates among SCA victims. Without CPR or the lifesaving technology of an AED, the chances of survival decrease by 7 to 10 percent every minute that passes without medical attention. AED programs encourage the placement of an accessible unit onsite, ongoing training and the use of emergency response plans.

“Getting help for an SCA victim within a matter of minutes is essential. With a functioning AED nearby, schools ensure a first responder can take action before emergency personnel arrive,” said Ryan Gard, Indianapolis Regional Sales Manager, Cintas. “Corporate citizenship is a core value of Cintas and we’re thrilled to share our industry knowledge with Ben Davis High School and provide them with an AED so that parents, teachers, coaches and students no longer have to live in fear of SCA.”
