Students learn the American Heart Association’s
Hands-Only™ CPR this week
The entire student body at Grand Island High School will be trained in bystander CPR March 4-7th. Using the American Heart Association’s Hands-Only™ CPR, Rural Metro, an American Heart Association training center, will be donating manikins, AED training equipment, and the time of instructors during the week-long program. The result will be approximately 1,000 trained students who are prepared to respond in a cardiac emergency.
The American Heart Association is urging passage of a state law that would require all high school students know CPR before graduation. The legislation is sponsored by Senator Grisanti. The instruction at Grand Island High School will show how easily this life-saving skill can be taught, with no cost to the school.
