Life lessons

Students in the Plymouth Canton Community Schools district are now MI HEARTSafe certified and Canton Fire Department responders were on scene to assist with the first cardiac arrest drill at Liberty Middle School last week. Canton fire officials said this is a "huge achievement for the school district and the fire department is honored to participate in their success." There are more than 350,000 sudden cardiac arrests per year and bystander intervention is key to survival, according to national statistics. The Plymouth Canton Community Schools students are now trained and equipped to provide this life saving care prior to EMS arrival.
