At least one AED is required on each school campus and, for any gathering of a substantial number of students, the AED and an employee trained in AED must be readily available. Students must receive CPR training once in grades 7-12.
Learn how to perform CPR by taking a training and certification class offered by your local American Red Cross chapter. This American Red Cross CPR training video was originally posted for CPR / AED Awareness week on June 2, 2008.
In this presentation to the North Quad community, Joel Thiebaut discusses how to use an AED, or automatic external defibrillator. An AED is used to help save the life of a person experiencing cardiac distress. Two AED devices are available in the North Quad academic tower: on the first floor by the School of Information Student Lounge and on the third floor by the elevator.
Bleeding Control Training
The Texas Education Code (TEC), §38.030, as added by House Bill (HB) 496, 86th Texas Legislature, requires the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to approve training for the use of a bleeding control station in the event of an injury to another person.
SMCISD uses Stop the bleed as the bleeding control training programs meet all requirements outlined in statute:
