HB 2809

You can read and track HB 2809 on the Oregon State Legislature site

Send positive, encouraging emails to each member of the Education Committee, and cc: Rep Julie Parrish, Julie's assistant, and me. Encourage them to endorse HB 2809.
Feel free to use parts or all of the following paragraph.

This bill fixes the major problem with Oregon's grade school emergency procedures for CPR by making CPR certification a requirement for Grade School: teachers, full time employees, and lunch room staff. This bill will shift the current guidelines in grade school from an Adult CPR model to a Child CPR model. Children need immediate CPR the moment they collapse to the floor. This bill will ensure children get appropriate care. The bill only costs between $360,000 and $420,000 every 2 years to get Child CPR into all Grade Schools in Oregon.
