CPR Training for Staff


Thanks to an American Heart Association “Family & Friends CPR Anytime” grant, the entire Otsego Public Schools’ staff will be trained in the core skills of Hands-Only CPR. Each staff member receives a personal kit which includes their own mini inflatable mannequin, instructional DVD and reference cards for adult and child CPR, AED, Hands-Only CPR and choking.

According to the AHA, nearly 300,000 people are treated by emergency medical services each year for cardiac arrest which can happen to anyone at any time. In addition to training our employees, it is the intent of the grant that our staff members will take the kits home and train family members in Hands-Only CPR and refresh their own skills often.
