[Ridgefield,NJ] - [June 5, 2024]: GD is proud to announce that in time for National CPR week, our entire GD team has achieved CPR certification, furthering our commitment to safety and preparedness. This accomplishment was made possible through our partnership with Focus Health, which provided the platform for our team to complete the American Red Cross online CPR course.

The comprehensive training equips our team with vital life-saving skills, ensuring they are prepared to respond effectively in emergency situations. This initiative underscores our dedication to fostering a safe and responsible workplace environment.

"Safety is a core value at GD, and the CPR certification of our GD team exemplifies our proactive approach to health and safety," said Curt Bashford, CEO.

We are grateful to Focus Health for their excellent platform that made it convenient for our team to complete this essential training. Team GD is All-In on lifesaving for our employees, families, and the public at large. 

Focus Health's user-friendly online platform facilitated a seamless learning experience, allowing our team members to gain certification at their own pace while adhering to their work schedules.
