The life of a Texas 7th Grader was recently saved by 2 alert teachers and the use of CPR and an Automated External Defibrillator. Here is video of the news story.
In 2007 the American Heart Association helped pass a law that requires an AED in every school in the state. We know that CPR + AEDs = Saved Lives which is why we support AED placement in all public places and CPR training for everyone.
One of our main priorities will be to have all students trained in CPR so they can have the power to save a life. Heart attacks can occur anywhere, and when they do CPR and AEDs can dramatically increase the chance of survival. Help us educate lawmakers on this issue and let them know all students should know CPR.
