American Heart Association Resources for CPR in Schools
In addition to the CPR in Schools Training Kit, the American Heart Association is committed to ensuring schools are prepared should a cardiac emergency happen in a school setting. Having a carefully orchestrated response to cardiac emergencies will reduce deaths in school settings and help ensure that chaos does not lead to an improper or inadequate response. Preparation is the essential key to saving lives! The AHA has partnered with more than 10 national education, health, and cardiac arrest organizations to create the first all-in-one toolkit to make sure your schools are prepared.
Multiple resources for schools are available for FREE, including a template Cardiac Emergency Response Plan and Protocol, implementation materials and so much more! The tools are free for any school to use and implement on www.heart.org/CERP.
