Gordon Truck Centers Dealer Family (GTC) has taken the next step in their safety and health program with the installation of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), at all dealership locations. 

The addition of AEDs throughout the organization is an investment to further safe guard the lives of employees, visitors, and customers and will complement other safety initiatives and training such as: CPR, First Aid, and Blood Borne Pathogens.

The Life-Saving Importance of AEDs:

  • Defibrillation within three minutes of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) increases the chances of survival up to 70 percent.
  • Shock within one minute of collapse raises the survival rate to 90 percent.
  • Calling 911 is necessary but the wait for first responders may take too long. The average call-to-shock time in a typical community is nine minutes.


The GTC Dealership Family values the safety of all employees and visitors. If you have safety concerns regarding any of our facilities, please reach out to
