Students at A.C. Reynolds High School are studying how to save lives! For Health Science II, students received instruction and became card-carrying, certified CPR administrators. The students took a class where they learned proper CPR and other life-saving techniques, such as how to notice when someone is choking, undergoing cardiac arrest, or a respiratory emergency, and administering an automated external defibrillator when necessary. 

The CPR class was taught by Cpt. James Doman of the Fairview Fire Department and Landon Miller, paramedic. 

“They feel especially proud when they get the card that states they are trained to respond to emergencies,” said health teacher Cathy Faw. “It gives them a sense of self worth and empowerment. They also have a new appreciation for how tiring giving CPR can be.”
