A project in one Southeast Kansas city steps up safety for residents

News

The Frontenac Public Safety Department is working to get all city workers certified in CPR. The decision comes in an effort to give area workers the skills to help others before emergency services arrive.

“So anytime we can provide a service to the community, such as CPR training, we’re going to do everything we can. It benefits us, it benefits all our residents. It’s a program we’ve been wanting to get on board with for quite a while,” says Frontenac Director of Public Safety John Zafuta.

In addition, the city will also be placing AED’s across its downtown area. The CPR project and the AED’s are being provided through funds from the fire department and the city of Frontenac.
