Celebrate CPR Training in Schools with a Big Thank You

by Keltcie D. on Wednesday, April 23, 2014

With your help, we made it happen.  Breanna’s Law is now official law in Maryland, and will ensure that all our high school students complete a hands-only CPR course before they graduate.  This is cause for celebration!

Send a big thank you to your legislators

Right now across our country, those who suffer out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) have only a 9.5% chance of surviving.  Roughly 4000 Marylanders suffer SCA each year and this bill can change the odds for them.   By training students in CPR in school, every year we’ll be increasing the number of citizens in our communities prepared to respond in a cardiac emergency. 

Help us celebrate:  Send a message to your legislators.
