Littleton Coin Company only business in the
North Country to own life-saving defibrillator!
Littleton, NH In early September, 2001, a lifesaving defibrillator was put into service at Littleton Coin Company. Sixteen employees of the company's recently completed extensive training on the business's very own M Series Defibrillator. This hi-tech device, about the size of a small radio, saves lives by "shocking" victims of cardiac arrest and regaining a pulse.
Employees trained to use the defibrillator received additional CPR and First Aid refresher courses. Although the defibrillator's computerized voice leads the operator through the steps, a team of three employees works together to administer the life-saving treatment. A monitor provides information about the patient's heart rate, and prompts for the operator to follow. Training was provided by Ross Ambulance of Littleton. Littleton Coin Company, Inc. is one of the world's leading providers of collectible coins, paper money and supplies. The company employs approximately 350 New Hampshire and Vermont residents, and occupies a 65,000-square-foot building on Mt. Eustis Road in Littleton, NH.
