CLARK — Did you know sudden cardiac arrest kills over 900 adults per year? CPR is saving lives as more people become trained and Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) become more common.
Arthur L. Johnson High School began certifying all juniors in Adult/Child CPR and AED in 2011. Along with CPR and AED training, the students receive much information on First Aid situations. The school’s goal is to give the students the knowledge of the topic in case they are ever presented with a situation in which CPR will need to be performed, which could also benefit them in the job market.
Pictured above are Abby Panetta and Katie Sanchez practicing their CPR and AED skills. When asked, “How do you think CPR training will benefit you in the future?” Panetta responded, “A forty minute class of CPR education is worth saving someone so that they can live out the rest of their life.” (Photo courtesy of ALJ)
