Fox Chapel Area School District employees trained to deal with various emergencies
More than 200 Fox Chapel Area School District employees attended a workshop Monday to train them for a number of emergencies that could occur in the schools.
Among the discussions about emergency response were how to administer naloxone to a person who is overdosing; how to deal with an active shooter; and how to administer first aid.
The event was held at Dorseyville Middle School in Indiana Township.
The event was presented by the Fox Chapel Area administration in a partnership with Allegheny Health Network and UPMC.
Employees from all six Fox Chapel Area schools participated.
They got hands-on opportunities to learn from Dr. Jonathan Chen, a pioneer of using naloxone for overdose intervention, along with first responders who taught emergency care and professionals from Allegheny Health Network Trauma Center with the “Stop the Bleed” program.
