CPR in School

Posted on Tuesday, January 03, 2017

According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 people suffer from sudden cardiac arrest outside a hospital each year, and only about 12 percent survive. For each minute that passes, the chance of survival decrease up to 10%. The only hope is the early administration of high quality CPR and defibrillation. The Wyoming Department of Public Safety - Fire Bureau was proud to stand with State government and be an important part in the changing of those statistics. Firefighter Brad Dornbos and Firefighter Brandon Travis joined Michigan Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley in the signing of Senate Bill 647, now Public Act 388. The bill will require Michigan high schoolers to learn CPR and how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) before graduation, beginning with the 2017-2018 school year.

Michigan is now one of 35 states and the District of Columbia that require high school students to be taught CPR based on American Heart Association guidelines. In those states combined, more than 2.1 million high school students each year will have been trained in CPR.  Michigan students will learn and practice hands-on CPR, which includes compressing the chest to circulate blood to vital organs such as the brain and heart. Students will also become familiar with AEDs, battery-operated mobile devices that can deliver a shock to a cardiac arrest victim’s heart.

The bill was supported by many, but most personally by high school seniors Tyler Menhart and best friend Noah Weeda.  Menhart, Weeda and State government officials joined the Fire Bureau in early 2016, at Wyoming Station #3, to show support of the then upcoming bill proposal and to share their story of why this education is so important.  Weeda explained how he collapsed during soccer drills in April 2015 at Northview High School in Grand Rapids, MI.  When unable to wake his friend, Menhart called 911 and used the CPR skills he’d learned as a Boy Scout. After CPR and later, other advanced medical interventions administered by EMS and hospital personnel, Weeda recovered from his injuries. Without the early intervention of CPR provided by Menhart, Weeda’s outcome may not have been so positive.  Also supporting the bill were the families of Wes Leonard, who died in 2011 at age 16 after a high school basketball tournament, of Kayla Stanford, who died at 13 after track practice in 2006, and of Kimberly Gillary, who died at 15 during a water polo match in 2000. Each of these stories show examples of why this education is so important and the hope it provides for future students.
