CPR Awareness at the Capitol

by Grace H. on Wednesday, April 3, 2013

Last week at the Capitol, AHA hosted a CPR training and awareness event.  Volunteer firefighters from Olympia and Tumwater helped us offer CPR trainings to legislators and their staff.  While volunteers delivered the message that nearly 3,000 people across our state support CPR training in schools. Later that day, the Senate Education Committee heard testimony on our bill.  Everyone who testified did great and the committee reacted very positively to our bill.  Now we’re working hard to get the bill moved out of committee and onto the Senate floor for a vote!
