The CPR in Schools law will go into effect school year 2017-2018. The goal is very simple - to save lives and to empower Missouri’s youth to be lifesavers by giving them the skills and confidence needed to help. Each day in the United States, approximately 1,000 people suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital. Schools present an opportunity to teach our youth basic, compressions-only CPR. There are many resources available to schools to help with CPR training. Schools should decide which resources best align with their plan for implementing training. The American Heart Association has placed training kits in a lending library system with the nine Regional Professional Developmental Centers and the seven Area Health Educational Centers throughout Missouri. Schools may contact their local center to learn how to check out kits for training; or for more information, please e-mail Krisca Gould at krisca.gould@heart.org, CPR in Schools Manager.
