Parents and staff affiliated with Family Service of Rhode Island will soon be able to learn infant CPR using realistic infant mannequins.

The mannequins were recently donated to the nonprofit social service and educational organization by Barry’s Auto Group in Newport.

Family Service of Rhode Island will use the infant mannequins to train staff members and foster parents who provide care for infants.

The mannequins, which offer a realistic experience in helping an infant whose breathing is blocked or needs to be resuscitated, were obtained by Barry’s through the National Automotive Dealers Charitable Foundation.

“We are pleased to help Family Service of Rhode Island, an outstanding agency that is building brighter futures for needy children and families in Rhode Island,” said Peter Barry, dealer principal at Barry’s. “This is part of Barry’s ongoing commitment to give back to the community.”

Greg Wright, Family Service of Rhode Island foster care coordinator, said his organization is grateful for the donation.

“Barry’s community commitment means we’ll have a better training tool to save young lives,” he said. “We deeply appreciate their assistance, and look forward to working with them in the future.”
