Earlier this month, the governor of Maryland signed the bill known as Breanna’s Law. It was named for a Baltimore County student whose life was saved by someone that knew CPR.
The new law also requires the students to learn how to use an AED (Automated External Defibrilator).
The new CPR requirement begins with the freshman class entering high school in the fall of 2015. That doesn’t mean schools in Maryland can’t get started immediately, though. You can bring free CPR training to Maryland high school students, today.
