AED/CPR in Schools only One Step Away

The Arkansas House Education Committee passed the AED/CPR in schools bill! It will now go to the full House for a vote. If you are unfamiliar with this bill it will put an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on every school campus in the state.

AEDs are the life saving devices that can shock a heart back to its normal rhythm after is goes into cardiac arrest. The bill will also provide training for school staff to be trained in CPR. AEDs and CPR are the best way to save a life when a sudden cardiac event occurs.

All children should be protected while at school and this law will help ensure their safety throughout the school day and at athletic events and practices.
