What Are You Doing to Celebrate CPR-AED Awareness Week?

What Are You Doing to Celebrate CPR-AED Awareness Week?

In late 2007, Congress declared the first week of June as “National Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Awareness Week.”

The Congressional resolution shines a national spotlight on how important it is for all Americans to learn critical lifesaving skills such as how to perform CPR, how to use an AED and the need to increase public access to AEDs.

House members Reps. John R. “Randy” Kuhl, Jr. (R-NY) and Dan Boren (D-OK) co-sponsored the House version of the bill (H.Con.Res. 215), and Sens. Russell Feingold (D-W) and Susan Collins (R-ME), championed the Senate version (S.Con.Res. 54), working with the American Heart Association and American Red Cross.

Last June, nationwide ceremonies, community activities and educational outreach efforts were conducted across the country.
