Moments ago a House sub-committee approved a measure that would add CPR training to Oklahoma schools. We applaud the Appropriations subcommittee on Education for their vote and encourage the full committee to approve this measure.
If you didn’t take action on the alert from yesterday, please take a second today and ask your State Representative to support CPR in schools. Click here to take action now!
This bill will teach our students the life saving technique of CPR as well as provide a training on how to use an Automated External Defibrillator. The next step will be for the entire Appropriations committee to vote on this bill, then the Oklahoma House and Senate.
When a sudden cardiac event occurs, fast action is needed to save a life. By teaching CPR training to all our students we can create an entire generation of potential heroes.
