Birmingham, AL – A major bank’s corporate headquarters is now equipped and ready to respond in an emergency. SouthPoint Bank’s headquarters – located on Highway 280 in Birmingham – has recently installed a brand new automated external defibrillator (AED), bleeding control kits, and emergency oxygen to better prepare should an emergency occur on its grounds. When coupled with CPR, the use of an AED can greatly increase the chance of survival in victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Furthermore, the bleeding control kits are available if needed to increase survival from uncontrolled bleeding, which is the #2 cause of preventable death outside of the hospital.
SouthPoint Bank’s CEO, Steve Smith, is thankful to take this next step of preparedness. “At SouthPoint, part of our core values includes respect and commitment to our team and to our customers; as a result, we cannot ignore the aspect of safety and preparedness for the wellbeing of those we serve on a daily basis in our facilities,” said Smith. “Stop Heart Attack and Trio Safety helped us be ready to assist our team and customers should an emergency occur by providing AEDs and bleeding control kits, as well as the necessary training,” according to Smith. He also added, “installing this crucial life-saving equipment in our new headquarters is just a small step toward making sure we are prepared for any scenario.”
