Fairport, NY, April 10, 2023– Victims of sudden cardiac arrest need two things to survive: immediate chest compressions and the use of an AED – an automated external defibrillator – to shock the heart back to a normal rhythm. That’s the aim of a partnership between Billitier Electric, Inc. and Perinton Ambulance to promote learning CPR.

A public service announcement was recently filmed on location at Perinton Ambulance featuring Chief Mike Hoskins from Perinton Ambulance and Mr. Ron Billitier, President and CEO of Billitier Electric, Inc.

“CPR was pushed into the spotlight during the Buffalo Bills game in Cincinnati,” said Chief Hoskins. “The message we need everyone to hear is how IMMEDIATE CPR is the key to survival. That’s why we’re thankful to Billitier Electric for sponsoring an upcoming public service announcement campaign to help us with that message.”

As a thank you for their support, Perinton Ambulance delivered CPR training to staff members at Billitier’s corporate headquarters on Brooks Avenue. As a result, seven more immediate responders are now equipped with the knowledge and skills to help save the life of a family member, friend, neighbor, or co-worker.

“Knowing that electricity is a key component in restoring someone’s heartbeat, it seemed a natural fit for us to sponsor this important message,” stated Mr. Billitier. “Leading by example and getting trained in CPR was the next best thing we could do.” This partnership would not be possible without the assistance of Mason Marketing, who was engaged by Perinton Ambulance to assist with educating the community on the role and importance of emergency medical services to the local community.
