CPR Training of Students Creates a New Generation of Lifesavers

by Nancy V. on Tuesday, October 2, 2012

How often have we heard stories of children saving the life of a sibling or a grandparent by not hesitating to call 911 or starting CPR?  Now imagine if all of our children learned how to do CPR correctly through a training offered through their required High School Health Class.  How many more lives can be saved?  Currently only 8% of sudden cardiac arrests survive, but with immediate CPR that number can be doubled or better!  Help the AHA advocate for CPR training in all NH schools.  Call in on Wednesday October 24th at 5:30pm for a one hour issue briefing on how you can be an effective advocate.
