Employees Trained in Prone Method
Realizing the importance of the Prone Pressure Method of Resuscitation in saving human life, a company-wide campaign of instruction is now being carried on by the Commonwealth Edison Company. Chicago, among its employees, and within a short time more than 9,000 of these employees will become proficient. Twenty-three departments and units of the organization had received instruction in the method prior to May 25. The work is being actively Conducted by Charles H. Davis, superintendent of the Edison Safety Division, and by Henry W. Lueck, assistant superintendent.
Decision to carry on this extensive campaign of instruction was brought about through the interest manifested in the prone pres-
sure method by a few small groups of employees. Other units, hearing of the valuable instruction available, sought permission to receive the lessons also. Interest rapidly grew to such an extent that the blanket campaign was adopted. In view of the approach of summer and the wide opportunities for employees to spread knowledge of the prone pressure method among their families and friends at bathing beaches and in emergencies, it is estimated that not less than 18,000 persons will soon have this expert ability to save life.
