Gov. Deal signs School CPR law at Dade County High in Georgia
From: WRCB tv
Thanks to the efforts of a retired nurse, CPR training is now required in high schools throughout Georgia.
Governor Nathan Deal made it official with his signature at Dade County High, where lifesaving is a skill already mastered by hundreds of students.
Freshmen at the school got something extra this year: the opportunity to learn life saving skills, including the Heimlich Maneuver, CPR, and the use of the aed (automated external defibrillator), the device that can treat life threatening cardiac issues. This was a first for the school.
