Killion CPR Bill Passes Senate

The Pennsylvania Senate today unanimously passed a life-saving cardiopulmonary resuscitation bill authored by Senator Tom Killion (R-9).

Killion’s Senate Bill 521 will strengthen academic standards in schools for CPR training in grades nine through twelve while adding hands-only CPR instruction to Pennsylvania’s education curriculum. If enacted, this instructional enhancement in high schools will substantially expand CPR training in the state.

The goal of Killion’s legislation is to prepare students with fundamental life skills.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation Urges PA Senators to Support CPR Training in Pennsylvania Schools

SB 521 (Killion) CPR training in high schools, will likely “run” today on final consideration in the Senate.

The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation is once again urging the Pennsylvania Senate to vote in favor of SB 521, sponsored by PA Senator Tom Killion (R-9th). The legislation will ensure that high school students receive CPR training and learn about automated external defibrillators at least once before graduation, without placing any financial burden on schools or the Commonwealth.

Football Safety Not Scoring High Enough in Schools

You can add the name Jordan McNair to the list of college, high school and middle school players who might have needlessly died for the love of football.

A simple, well-known procedure — immersing McNair, 19, in a tub of ice water — when he collapsed at an off-season University of Maryland workout in May could well have saved his life. But it didn’t happen. This failure drew national attention to how unprepared many football programs are to keep their players safe.

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.
