Guest Blog: Danielle Wicklund on the Importance of CPR in Schools
CPR training in high schools is the best place to create a generation of lifesavers. Why? Because the majority of sudden cardiac arrests happen outside of the hospital and most of these people aren’t close to first responders. This means that they are surrounded by regular people, like you and me. It’s critical that we all know the one skill that could save a life so I want to urge our lawmakers to bring CPR training to Pennsylvania’s high schools by supporting SB 948 and HB 1464. It takes as 30 minutes to train students in this lifesaving skill.
