Jeff Bank Set to Install Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in all of its Branches



Jeffersonville, NY (February 15, 2019) Jeff Bank is pleased to announce that it will be equipping all 12 of its branches with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) during the early part of 2019.

In April of 2018, 18 employees from the Bank attended training to become certified in CPR with additional training in the use of AEDs. The Bank is planning to offer more training to its employees, in an effort to make sure at least 1 person in every branch location is trained and certified in CPR and the use of AEDs.

Tanya Hahn, Executive Vice President and Chief Lending Officer has led the project of having an AED available in every branch. Ms. Hahn was a volunteer EMT for over 20 years. “I have seen many instances where early intervention may have saved a person’s life,” stated Ms. Hahn. “Learning CPR is invaluable to all of us.”

Jeff Bank adopted a Wellness Initiative in January 2018 and continues to grow its effort to keep the initiative going. Jeff Bank is proud to have partnered with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County and the American Heart Association to develop and grow this initiative.
