AED and CPR Training Opportunities

Dolton West Elementary District 148 takes seriously the health and safety of all students and staff members who are on school premises. All District 148 schools are equipped with Automated External Defibrillators (AED's) and staff members have been trained in the use of these devices. Opportunities also are made available each school year for staff to receive Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and AED training. In addition, the Illinois High School Association has a CPR training video that can be accessed on the IHSA's Sports Medicine page. You also can watch a training video at:
