Recently several PAAW members participated in an American Heart Association Lobby Day event in support of Assembly Bill 654 / Senate Bill 549. This legislation will ensure all 911 dispatchers are trained to talk callers through how to perform CPR while they wait for first responders to arrive.
Bystander CPR is proven to save lives. Your help is requested to help educate state lawmakers about the importance of this legislation and to highlight the impact it would have in your community.
The Assembly will vote on AB654 on February 20. A vote is not yet scheduled on the Senate side.
Please, reach out to your legislators and let them know that dispatcher-assisted CPR is key to helping EMS in your community! Find my legislators>
