Thanks to a small but mighty group of advocates, a bill requiring all public schools to have AEDs has passed the Senate. We are working with the House to quickly take it up by this fall.
A group of dedicated volunteers have shared their heartbreaking stories of losing a child to sudden cardiac arrest and it has truly made a difference. Families from across the State have come to the State House to knock on doors, have meetings, talk to the press and share their stories with countless legislators to help put a face to this lifesaving piece of legislation.
This bill has been around for over 15 years and I truly believe that thanks to our advocates this is its year! If you have not already joined the efforts and reached out to your State Representative their is still time, email me at [email protected] and I will give you all the details.
With all of us together we can work to turn the tragic loss of children into a triumph to save hundreds more.
