Group wants Mandatory CPR Classes in Schools

In Effectiveness, Health and Safety, Rescues by Paul MartinLeave a Comment

An 18-year-old, equipped with the valuable knowledge of how to perform CPR, saved the life of a 63-year-old in a clothing store in Newburyport, Mass.

How did he know CPR? He’d just completed a Newburyport High School graduation requirement – a CPR class.

Now the families of both the rescuer and the rescued are united in getting a bill passed that would make it mandatory that all high school students complete a CPR class before being allowed to graduate.

You can read about the life-saving incident at The Boston Channel.

Do you feel that it should be a national requirement to learn CPR before you graduate high school? Feel free to comment on this story!
