Governor Brown signed into law AB 1719, a law that requires hands-on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) instruction, along with Automated External Defibrillator awareness in high school health classes. California is the 35th state to provide CPR training in schools. With CPR in schools, we have the opportunity to create a generation in which teens and young adults in California are trained in CPR as a part of their health education and prepared to save lives, adding thousands of qualified lifesavers to our state. Marin County Office of Education will be looking at the requirements for this and the impact on existing coursework, as well as training for staff and students.
