Ohio - Project Alive (Saving A Life Is Very Easy)

Upper Arlington City Schools AED program (Project Alive - Saving A Life Is Very Easy) has been in place for about six years. 

This collaborative program between the Upper Arlington Fire Division, the Upper Arlington Schools and community representatives aims to put AED's in all the schools, libraries, community recreation facilities, and police cruisers.

So far, they have placed two AED's in each of the five elementary schools, three AED's in both middle schools and seven AED's at the high school campus.  The project includes training and CPR/AED certification for all students at the High School over a four year period with the American Heart Association HeartSaver AED program.
Students are also trained when they take their required High School Health curriculum and have included CPR certification with all Middle School and High School athletic team captains.

Over the past 20 years they have had five SCA saves in the school system; a third grader, an eighth grader, an eleventh grader, a maintenance worker and most recently a parent at an away sports event.
