Barry’s Auto Group Helps Family Service of Rhode Island Infant CPR Training

NEWPORT, RI – (October 23, 2012) Staff and families working with Family Service of Rhode Island will be able to learn infant cardio-pulmonary resuscitation with realistic infant manikins thanks to Barry’s Auto Group in Newport.

Family Service of Rhode Island, a non-profit social service and educational organization, will utilize the infant manikins to train staff providing care for infants as well the agency’s foster parents.

“We are pleased to help Family Service of Rhode Island, an outstanding agency that is building brighter futures for needy children and families in Rhode Island,” said Peter Barry, dealer principal at Barry’s. “This is part of Barry’s ongoing commitment to give back to the community.”

The infant manikins, obtained from the National Automotive Dealers Charitable Foundation with Barry’s support, has features that provide trainees realistic experience in helping an infant whose breathing is blocked or needs to be resuscitated.

“Barry’s community commitment means we’ll have a better training tool to save young lives,” said Greg Wright, Family Service of Rhode Island’s foster care coordinator. “We deeply appreciate their assistance, and look forward to working with them in the future.”
