On August 15, the School District of Osceola County passed a policy to ensure high school students learn CPR prior to graduation.
We're thrilled that Osceola County high school students will learn CPR and help strengthen the chain of survival in the community.
Each year, more than 350,000 cardiac arrests occur outside the hospital in the United States. About 90 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. CPR, especially if performed immediately, can double or even triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.
