At Paragon, safety isn’t just a priority; it’s ingrained in our company culture. We understand that emergencies can happen at any moment, which is why we’ve assembled a team of first responders right here in our office.

These individuals are equipped with the knowledge, training, and resources necessary to handle any situation swiftly and effectively. Whether it’s a medical emergency, a fire alarm, or any other unexpected event, our first responders are ready to spring into action, ensuring the safety and well-being of everyone in our workspace.

Our commitment to safety extends beyond mere compliance with regulations; it’s a reflection of our values as a company. We believe that every member of our team deserves to feel secure and supported while on the job. The education for our first responders keeps their skills sharp and their readiness high.

By fostering a culture of preparedness and proactive safety measures, we not only protect our employees but also contribute to a positive and productive work environment where everyone can thrive.

All of our First Responders have the following training:

  • Adult CPR: with training on how to provide basic CPR to adult victims, as well as respond to victims who are choking.
  • Automated External Defibrillator (AED): with knowledge of how to use and maintain the AED in the facility, and how to use the AED in a variety of special situations.
  • BloodBorne Pathogens: includes training on universal precautions, the risk and types of infectious diseases contracted through exposure, and the proper safeguards to prevent exposure; training also includes the proper methods of handling potential contaminants.
  • First Aid: so that our responders have a solid understanding of the elements to providing first aid for any age victim. This also includes responder protection plus first aid treatment instructions, and procedures for bleeding, burns, broken bones, and a variety of other medical, injury, or environmental emergencies.

We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to all of the first responders on our team and who are prepared to help victim should the need arise. Their dedication and quick thinking are invaluable assets to our company, and we are immensely proud to have them as part of the Paragon family. Their unwavering commitment to the well-being of their colleagues exemplifies the spirit of teamwork and community that defines us. So here’s to our first responders – thank you for your selflessness, your vigilance, and your unwavering dedication to keeping us safe.
