Michigan Schools CPR/AED Drill Week is coming up the first week of February.
There is a coalition in Michigan, including the American Heart Association, who are encouraging our Michigan Schools to make the commitment to hold a CPR/AED Practice Drill during this time.
It is also an opportunity to raise awareness for the need for AEDs and proper training. Less than one-third of sudden cardiac arrest victims are administered immediate CPR from bystanders. Michigan Schools CPR/AED Drill Week is equipping students to act in emergencies and ultimately save lives.
Sudden cardiac arrest and other life-threatening emergencies can happen anywhere, even in your workplace. Giving CPR and using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can greatly increase the victim’s chance of survival.
