Wisconsin To Require CPR Training for Students

Wisconsin became the latest state in the country to require CPR training in its schools under legislation signed into law this week.

The measure was inspired by the heroic actions of several teenagers who came to the rescue of a man who had suffered a heart attack while riding his bike, said state Sen. Jerry Petrowski, one of the bill’s primary sponsors.

“Without the quick thinking and action of three CPR-trained teenagers who happened to be nearby, he would not have survived,” Petrowski said. “This incident really showed me the importance of this legislation and prompted me to author this bill.”

The legislation requires all Wisconsin public, charter and private schools to teach CPR, as well as cardio cerebral resuscitation, or CCR, as part of health education classes offered to students between seventh and 12th grade. The law takes effect with the 2017-2018 school year.

South Carolina Gov. Haley Signs Lifesaving CPR in Schools Bill into Law

COLUMBIA, SC--Governor Nikki Haley signed House Bill 3265 into law on April 21, requiring all South Carolina students to learn hands-on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

This essential life skill will be incorporated into the already required high school health education curriculum and will ultimately benefit countless families by increasing the number of people with CPR proficiency.  Far too many people die suddenly from cardiac arrest who might have been saved if only those around them were trained to administer CPR.
