GEMS certifies all school nurses in CPR and AED use, and secured grant money and town funding to provide Automated External Defibrillators to each Greenwich public school and we train response teams at each site in First Aid and CPR. GEMS conducts 3rd grade EMS awareness programs, teaching students what to do until the ambulance arrives; 6th grade CPR progras; 8th grade CPR recertification and first aid courses; 10th and 12th grade CPR recertification, full response to a cardiac arrest and AED training.
