AHA Honors Youth for Advocacy Work


The American Heart Association, along with state and congressional leaders, recently honored three Ellington high school students who were instrumental in getting a Connecticut State Board of Education resolution passed calling for public school districts to train CPR and AED awareness to their students. The three students, members of Ellington Rescue Post 512, performed a CPR / Change of Survival demonstration to Board members before the resolution came up for a vote. Under the resolution, the life-saving resources will be available by 2015-16 and all schools should be accessing them by 2016-17.
