Grays Harbor EMS prepping local high schools for new graduation requirement: CPR training

OLYMPIA, Wash. – New Graduation requirements in Washington will save lives on and off the High School campus, and if they don’t know already, your students will learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation. “They figure the more training they can get, the better for everybody in the public and in school.”
Sharryl Bell with Grays Harbor EMS said last week that they are working with local schools to make sure that the Class of 2014 knows what to do in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest emergency. “A lot of school like Hoquiam High School has a program set up, Aberdeen [trains] their staff and they are working toward their students. For those that are already doing it in school it’s not a big deal.” Bell said students will also be trained to use Automated External Defibrillators that restart a heart with an electric shock.
According to the American Heart Association, of the nearly 360-thousand people in the US that suffer sudden cardiac arrest outside of the hospital, only 9.5% survive, often because they don’t receive timely CPR.  Bystander CPR, when given right away, can double or even triple a victim’s chances of survival.
Substitute house bill 1556 was signed into law earlier this year. Beginning this school year, instruction in CPR must be included in at least one health class necessary for graduation.

National Teacher of The Year to speak to Aberdeen teachers

ABERDEEN, Wash. – The 2013 National Teacher of the Year, Jeffrey Charbonneau, will help kick off the new school year with an address to teachers in the Aberdeen School District on Thursday, August 29.
“We are extremely grateful that Mr. Charbonneau accepted our invitation to come to Aberdeen,” Superintendent Thomas Opstad said. He added that several teachers and principals from Aberdeen have heard Mr. Charbonneau speak and are pleased their fellow educators will also get to experience the same motivation they felt when hearing him talk about working with students of all abilities.
Mr. Charbonneau is a high school chemistry, physics and engineering teacher in Zillah, Washington. He’s been working in this position for his entire 12-year teaching career. He recognizes that many students see his course subjects as the “hard” science classes and he welcomes the challenge to overturn the stigma. His classes feature a unique robotics challenge and other interactive learning experiences that see high percentages of students succeed in college-level coursework in a high school setting.
