Jack took his Level C training years ago as a teen, and has seen value in updating his certification throughout his career. “Having first aid is one of the most invaluable tickets you can have on the job, because you never know what is going to happen,” he says. “I just love being there for people and helping them as much as I can.” First aid training has evolved over the years, and updating certification has helped Jack stay current with life-saving advancements like automatic electronic defibrillators, anaphylaxis response and naloxone kits, which he has used multiple times. Two years ago, while he and his family were getting ready at home one morning, Jack found his spouse face-down on the bathroom floor. “I didn’t want to move her because I thought she might have slipped and caused a head or neck injury. As I looked closer, I noticed her mouth was drooping on her one side,” he recalls. “I could see her eyes moving, she was trying to hear me, but her speech was slurred. That’s when I remembered FAST – face, arms, speech and time.” He called 911 and she was sent to the hospital for surgery. “She pulled through. She has returned to work and although she still struggles with memory and other challenges, she is improving every day,” he says.

ANDY JACK

Andy Jack can give plenty of reasons why first aid is essential in his profession, but it only took one personal incident to confirm his commitment to refresher training.
