AT&T has donated new CPR kits to Frisco ISD Maus Middle School and Reedy High School to support the CPR in Schools Program initiated by the American Heart Association.
According to FISD Superintendent Jeremy Lyon, “Each of us should know how to do CPR. Thanks to AT&T and the American Heart Association, as well as our state legislature for the passage of House Bill 897, our North Texas students in grades seven through twelve will now be empowered to learn core SPR skills, which, if applies properly, can double or even triple a victim’s chance of survival.”
These kits donated by AT&T will help the students in learning the basic skills of CPR, choking relief techniques and the usage of AED.
Each kit includes: 10 mini inflatable manikins; 10 kneel mats with carry bags; 10 “practice while watching” training DVDs; a hand pump for manikin inflation; two mesh collection and storage bags; a classroom carry bag; 50 replacement airways; 50 manikin wipes; 10 replacement masks; and a facilitator guide.
This partnership between AT&T and the AHA focuses on a new state law requiring CPR training mandatory in Texas schools.
