Singleton students trained to make difference in community

What started out as an idea from the Isaac Singleton Elementary student council members turned

into a wonderful morning of learning and training. More than 90 Singleton fourth- and fifth-

grade students were taught hands-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and how to use an

automated external defibrillator (AED) thanks to the efforts of Singleton teacher Alyssa Walters.

The physical education teacher worked with Cardiac Science and School Health Corporation to

obtain the instructors for the two-hour CPR and AED training. Additional trainers included

volunteers from the American Heart Association, emergency medical technicians, nurses,

paramedics, a retired firefighter, and a retired Army medic.

"Our student council was interested in doing something that would help others," said Isaac

Singleton Elementary Principal Christopher Latting, "This hands-on training gave students the

opportunity to learn skills that will enable them to be impactful community members."

"CPR/AED training and exposure for these 4th and 5th graders to respond in this critical

event will save lives and have a positive impact on several generations to come," said

Brooke Berdelle, Cardiac Science Executive Area Manager, "At Cardiac Science, our

passion and purpose is saving lives. Thank you for moving this mission forward and truly

being at the Heart of Saving Lives!"
