    NEWBURGH-The American Red Cross in Greater New York’s Orange and Sullivan area office is launching a promotion of CPR Stations to help businesses become compliant with state regulations mandating resuscitation equipment in all patron-accessible areas. Under New York’s Title 10, Part 801, all patron-accessible businesses are required to have resuscitation equipment readily available. Businesses affected by this regulation include, but are not limited to bars, service counters, host/hostess stations, registration desks and concession stands, health clubs, theaters, concert halls, auditoriums, martial arts studios, health spas and studios, gymnasiums and restaurants. Priced at $24.95, and developed by manufacturer First Aid Only, the station includes resuscitation face shields, gloves, sanitary wipes, a disposable bag, clearly marked instructions and basic cardio-pulmonary resuscitation instructions in English and Spanish. The station is organized, easy to display and mount, and features the distinctive Red Cross logo. For more information, or to purchase a CPR Station, call 1-877-REDCROSS or visit
