High School Students Get CPR Training

/ 97.3 The Eagle

High school students in the Comox Valley will be getting CPR and defibrillator training. Sandra Clarke, with the Advanced Coronary Treatment Foundation, says the goal is to establish the programs in high schools across the country. “The ACT Foundation asks the individual schools to insert it as mandatory so every young person has the chance to learn the training,” states Clarke. “We are also asking the Ministry of Education to do the same thing so that province wide it will become part of the curriculum.” Clarke is hopeful students will encourage others to learn the life saving skills. So far the program has been established in 228 high schools across BC.
