CPR training for the youth of the country is something that we feel is very important.  In fact, we’re in the midst of the beginning of a project to provide that very service.  When we hear of things like this, it lends a lot of credibility to our own concept.

Sam Rafal, an eighth-grade physical science teacher at Madison County Middle School – and also a licensed EMT – has been teaching CPR to the students in his classes for several years. But this year, he received a grant that allowed him to expand instruction to the entire eighth grade.

“I just know that seconds and minutes count,” said Rafal, who’s seen many cardiac-arrest patients in his 25 years as an EMT. “And I just knew that the more people we could get in the field who knew CPR, the more likely that someone who needed help would have someone close to them who could help.”
