Defibrillators in Every School?

This article appeared in the Times and the PI about a study by Harborview on the usefulness of having defibrillators at every school (as some states are mandating). But, of course, it costs money for both the machine and the training. The article points out that adults are more likely to have heart attacks than children and it is more likely to occur at a middle or high school.

I have never heard discussion of this by either the District or the Board. Of course, it only takes one sad death to make people wonder about needing them.
