Petal High School kicks of city wide CPR training

An initative to get 60% of all Petal residents trained in CPR is underway.

The initiative is part of a senior project by Sam Hendry and the Allied Health Program at Petal High School. Tuesday students from the program were at City Hall for two sessions with Petal city employees.

The goal of the project is to increase out-of-hospital survival from cardiac arrest by teaching residents the life saving procedure.

The students started by holding sessions with teachers, staff, and employees at the school before moving on to the employees of the city.

Training sessions with Petal residents are being planned and the goal is to be to 60% by April of 2013.

"Mary Hill with the Allied Health Department at Petal High School put it together. She had her students come down and do the training and saw a video," said Hal Marx, Petal Mayor. "We had hands on training and the students were very impressive in their ability to convey that knowledge to us in a way we were able to do it".

"It's an exciting time," Boney said.  "We want parents to know we need them to be involved and we want students to know we are headed for success and we will have a good school year."
