CPR Training at the Illinois Statehouse

by Anne S. on Thursday, March 13, 2014

American Heart Association volunteers led by AHA Illinois Advocacy Committee member J.R. Dietl taught over 100 Capitol staff how to save a life last month by training them in CPR and AED use.  With the legislature in recess that week, legislative and Capitol building staff took advantage of a comparably quiet afternoon in Springfield by attending the training, which the AHA puts on every-other year.  And advocates took this opportunity to not only train staff in this life-saving skill but also talk about Lauren's Law - training all Illinois high school students in CPR before graduation.
