Special thanks to the state of Arkansas! HB 2224 passed both the House and Senate and is now signed into law by Governor Beebe. This bill will require basic CPR training to be a permanent part of the high school Health and Safety Course, which is a requirement for graduation.
Starting with the freshman class of 2016, all high school students in Virginia will be trained in CPR before they graduate. Gwyneth’s Law, named for 13-year old Gwyneth Griffin who died in July 2012 after suffering a cardiac arrest at school, also requires all teachers in Virginia to be trained in CPR.
