Please tell your Senator to vote YES and help protect our children while they’re at school. CPR and AEDs have proven to be lifesaving techniques when used after someone suffers a sudden heart attack. All schools deserve to have AEDs and staff trained in CPR. Because of your help passing a tobacco tax increase - - funding is now available for this program. All we have to do pass it! Again, please take action at the link above! Sincerely, Barbara Kumpe Government Relations Director Heart Disease and Stroke. You’re the Cure.
