NJ Senate Passes “Janet’s Law” Requiring AEDs at School Sports Events

The New Jersey Senate has approved “Janet’s Law” sponsored by Senator Robert Singer (R-30) to prevent student-athlete deaths due to cardiac arrest.

This initiative, introduced four years ago by Singer in the memory of Janet Zilinski, requires public and private schools to have automated external defibrillators (AEDs) on school grounds with trained operators at sports events.

“Janet’s Law is a long time coming and a relatively small requirement for New Jersey’s schools to prevent tragic deaths,” said Singer, R-Monmouth, Ocean. “While we continue to hope such tragedies are rare, as in Janet’s case, the unpredictable can strike at any moment like during a jog at cheerleading practice. Swift access to AEDs can mean the difference between life and death.”

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
