Push For CPR Training In PA Schools

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – The PA Senate approved a bill that will strengthen academic standards in schools for CPR training in grades nine through twelve while adding hands-only CPR instruction to Pennsylvania’s education curriculum. The goal of Senate Bill 521 is to prepare students with fundamental life skills according to the bill’s sponsor, Delaware County Sen. Tom Killion, who noted that over 350,000 cardiac arrests occur outside of hospitals each year. The bill now goes to the state House for consideration. If the bill becomes law, Pennsylvania would become the 39th state to enact similar CPR legislation.
