What is the Trained For “Saving Lives” Program?

The TRAINED FOR “SAVING LIVES” program is an effort to have California wineries provide the safest wine country experience possible, for both staff and consumers alike. When you visit California wineries, your health and safety are very important to us. The participating wineries have had their staff trained, to guarantee your safety and well-being.

How to become involved with TRAINED FOR “SAVING LIVES?”

In collaboration with the American Red Cross and ZOLL Medical Corporation, Ron Rubin Winery is covering the cost of one ZOLL AED PLUS (Automated External Defibrillator) unit, to each qualifying California winery, for up to 450 wineries.

This sustainability and safety program is designed to keep everyone at a California winery safe and saved, if necessary.

In order for a California winery to qualify and receive a ZOLL AED PLUS, winery owners or representatives must contact Ron Rubin by Email at ron@ronrubinwinery.com.


After a winery’s qualifications are approved to receive a ZOLL AED PLUS, it will be promptly contacted, by a representative from the American Red Cross, to schedule CPR/AED/First Aid training for the winery’s team. Winery participants will cover the cost of their staff training.
