In One Class Period, We Can Teach Delaware's Students to Be the Next Generation of Lifesavers!

    1. Sponsored by

      American Heart Association

Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in the United States and 88% of sudden cardiac arrests occur at home. For every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation, chances of survival decrease by 7-10 percent. That's why it's important that we all learn how easy---and critical---it is to take action.

You might be surprised to learn that we can teach Delaware's students CPR and what to do in an emergency in just one class period. You can help ensure that this generation of students becomes the next generation of life savers--send your message now in support of CPR training for Delaware's students!

      CPR training is one of the most important step each of us can take. I've been CPR certified over the last 20 years.
