High School CPR Toolkits Available

Lauren's Law, enacted in July 2014, requires that all secondary schools provide training in Bystander CPR and Automated External Defibrillators (AED) education as part of the health education curriculum. The Illinois State Board of Education provides a guidance document on this law, available at www.isbe.net/pdf/ school_health/guidance-15-06-CPR-AED-secondary-schools150801.pdf . 

  To help schools with the cost and materials necessary to meet this requirement, Illinois Heart Rescue has created High School CPR Toolkits for schools' use. Each toolkit will include 16 stackable and durable mannequins, two AED trainers, educational support materials including key messaging highlights, and reference materials. Each kit also contains a CPR training DVD that is available in five languages.
      Regional Offices of Education (ROEs) via the Illinois State Board of Education were provided with the CPR toolkits to share with schools.  Monroe Randolph ROE has been provided with two kits.  One is housed at Valmeyer High School and the other is housed at Sparta High School.  If your school would like to check out one of the kits, please contact the host school directly.
