Sen. Altman Sponsors CPR in Schools Legislation

 

We’re thrilled that Senator Thad Altman from Melbourne has agreed to sponsor our CPR in Schools legislation. Senate Bill 328 is now ready to move through the committee process. Please call or email your Senator, asking for his or her support so we can train generations of life savers in Florida.

Nearly 424,000 people experience cardiac arrest outside of the hospital every year, but only 10.4%survive, most likely because CPR is not administered soon enough. Isn't it time for the Florida Legislature to make sure all high school students learn CPR before they graduate? It’s one of the best ways to add more lifesavers to our communities.
