CPR and First Aid in the public school system

If performed immediately, CPR can double a person’s chance of survival. Greenwich EMS teaches these lifesaving skills in all three middle schools as well as Greenwich High School. Sixth grade students learn "Hands Only" CPR and 8th grade students get a certification in First Aid. At the high school level 10th graders will receive a certification in CPR/AED and recertified again in 12th grade.
