CPR Training at the Illinois Statehouse


American Heart Association volunteers led by AHA Illinois Advocacy Committee member J.R. Dietl taught over 100 Capitol staff how to save a life last month by training them in CPR and AED use.  With the legislature in recess that week, legislative and Capitol building staff took advantage of a comparably quiet afternoon in Springfield by attending the training, which the AHA puts on every-other year.  And advocates took this opportunity to not only train staff in this life-saving skill but also talk about Lauren's Law - training all Illinois high school students in CPR before graduation.
