Biener Audi presented a Resusci Anne CPR training unit to the Roslyn Hook & Ladder Company. New York State Senator Jack Martins and New York State Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel officiated the event.
A member of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association (GNYADA), Biener Audi administered the cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) donations on behalf of the National Automobile Dealers Association Charitable Foundation at its dealership at 795 Northern Blvd.
in Great Neck.
“It’s a great honor to present the Roslyn Hook & Ladder Company with this lifesaving CPR unit. They do such an incredible job protecting our community. It’s the least we can do,” said Andrew Weinstock, executive vice president of Biener Audi.
A true family business for the past 80-plus years, Biener Audi has helped Long Islanders get behind the wheel of some of the finest cars. Since opening its doors in 1929, Biener Audi has welcomed tens of thousands of New Yorkers to its dealership, which has been named one of the best of the year by DealerRater.com. The dealership was also a recipient of the Audi Magna Society Award and an International Service Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences for exemplary service and customer care.
New-car dealers across the country spearhead projects that enrich the lives of their community members. Nationwide, tens of thousands of citizens have been taught how to provide CPR on training units donated by automobile dealers as the result of this program. CPR training units help save lives and give comfort and security to those trained.
The donation is part of the community outreach program of the National Automobile Dealers Association, which is administered locally by GNYADA. The units allow personnel to train area residents on the correct way to provide CPR, allowing those trained to save the lives of countless people who suffer heart attacks or are in need of immediate attention. Since 1975, franchised automobile dealers across the country have donated thousands of mannequins worth more than $4 million on which more than two-million people have been trained.
