Allied Universal Security Professional Honored by American Red Cross for Life Saving Actions

Mark Paul, a security professional for Allied Universal, was honored by The American Red Cross at its Evening of the Stars event for his heroic actions that saved a life.

Paul was recognized at the event on Nov. 14, for assisting an individual in need and saving their life. While on shift at Allied Universal’s client State Farm Park in Illinois, Paul helped a State Farm employee who collapsed from cardiac arrest by administering CPR while another worker administered an AED (automated external defibrillator). He credits his swift call to action to his military and first aid training that resulted in saving the person’s life.

“Today, I am profoundly inspired by the heroism displayed by our dedicated security professional who, in a moment of crisis, went beyond the call of duty,” said Steve Jones, global chairman and CEO of Allied Universal. “In saving a life through CPR, Mark Paul reminds us that our commitment to safety extends far beyond the confines of our roles. This heroic act serves as a testament to the unwavering dedication of our team and underscores the values that define our company. We are immensely proud to have such exceptional individuals on our team, embodying the essence of true heroes.”

The American Red Cross Evening of the Stars event is a fundraising event that helps provide essential support to the families that the Red Cross serves and during this event local central Illinois heroes were recognized for their heroic actions.
