AUGUST 2019 -The City of Jackson Fire Department was enhanced when Mark Porter Ford, who partnered with the Ohio Automobile Dealers Association, were presented with an AED training unit.


Chane Porter the General Manager of Mark Porter Ford, Mark Porter the Dealer Principal Mark Porter Auto Group along with Theresa Porter, and OADA Services Member Coordinator, Emily Steveley presented Jeff Young the Assistant Chief along with Chief Dave Channel the AED Training Unit.


Chane Porter said of the occasion, ”It was our pleasure to give this donation of the AED unit to the City of Jackson Fire Department. Our relationship first developed with them when their fire chief David Channel stopped out after we took ownership to discuss in case of fire here at the store. We have continued our relationship over the last couple years by supporting their imitative to educate the youth on fire safety; which the fire department goes into the schools to teach about safety. This relationship immediately made me think of fire department on how they can use this within their own training to be able to better assist our community. The AED training unit will have our fire personnel better equipped to handle even more emergencies. Any opportunity that we as Mark Porter Autogroup have to help our local emergency personnel we jump at to make sure our community is safe as can be.”
