Convenient Safety Magnets Tell You What To Do In An Emergency
Date:6/2/2009

Company Makes it Easy to Remember CPR Instructions

CHANDLER, Ariz., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Years ago, you took a class in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). At the time you knew what to do if someone was having a heart attack, but now, it's not so clear. Is CPR thirty compressions or sixty? How often? And time is of the essence. Do you really have time to find that often misplaced first aid guide?

Now a small business has come forward with a simple way to help: put the CPR instructions on something very convenient and accessible - like a refrigerator magnet. "We're all busy - we know that ideally we should get formally trained every two years in CPR as the American Heart Association (AHA) recommends but the reality is that we don't - so what then?" says Peter Weisberg, President and CEO of Safety Magnets.

"The idea occurred to us that if we could just put the instructions on something convenient - like a magnet - the next time an emergency occurred, you could pull it off of your refrigerator and have some semblance of what to do. With June 1-7 being CPR and AED Awareness Week, we need to better equip the public with some basic instruction on CPR - we think Safety Magnets do just that."

Mr. Weisberg and his wife launched Safety Magnets in 2007. Since then, the company has sold over twenty thousand Safety Magnets in various sizes and shapes and for various emergency situations (e.g., poisoning, burns, choking, signs of a stroke, etc.).

"We sell through our website (www.safetymagnets.com) and not just to users like parents and caregivers but to businesses and other organizations as well." Mr. Weisberg explains that urgent care centers, hospitals, insurance agents, fire departments, municipalities, senior care centers, are all purchasing Safety Magnets, adding their logo, and handing them out to their customers and employees. "They have a much longer 'shelf life' than sports or calendar magnets which typically get thrown away at the end of the year."

Billie Rantala with the Family Health Centers in Longview, WA comments that their "patients are so happy to receive them. They are so much better than what we were handing out before. We're also ordering them in Spanish." Catherine Revell, an insurance agent in Phoenix concurs, "It really feels like a gift of love rather than some trick to get their business."
