Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act Now Law in New Jersey

by Corinne O. on Monday, February 3, 2014

Legislation that would require coaches of school athletic teams to learn CPR and schools to provide information about sudden cardiac arrest to student athletes and their parents was signed by Governor Christie in the final hours of his first term in office.

We thank Governor Christie for his support of this legislation that will make student athletes, coaches, spectators and all others in the community safer by increasing the number of people who are trained in CPR.  We also thank Governor Codey, Senator Beach, Senator Gordon, Senator Beck, Assemblyman Eustace, Assemblywoman Jasey, Assemblywoman Caride, Assemblyman Wimberly, Assemblyman Diegnan and Assemblywoman Pintor Marin for their leadership in sponsoring the law.
