After former Early Childhood Center student, Audi Anderson, passed away from a choking incident at his school in Pensacola, ECC principal, Brian Tice, reached out to LifeVac to purchase some of the units for their campus.

LifeVac is a company who sells anti-choking apparatus’, world wide.

“We just want to make sure that we have the tools necessary to do what needs to be done in the case of an emergency,” said Principal, Brian Tice.

After speaking with Tice, the founder and CEO of the New York based company decided to make a special trip to Marianna to donate more than 30 units to ECC. 

“This school stepped up and said we have to make a difference, we got to make a change, and they’re going to put it in their whole district to stop these tragedies from happening,” said LifeVac founder and CEO, Arthur Lih.

The Early Childhood Center will use 14 of the LifeVac units and share the rest with the other pre-k and elementary schools across the county.

Tice says that they are grateful for the donation and hope that they can get the word out about how helpful the LifeVac can be.
