1. Find your State Senator’s office phone by using the link above
2. Call and ask to speak with their Legislative Assistant and identify yourself as a constituent
3. Tell the assistant that you would like to leave a message for your Senator urging them to support HB 1337 by reinstating the requirement for CPR training by amending the language from “may” back to “shall”. This legislation would enact lifesaving change to Missouri’s education policy, ensuring that students graduating from high school statewide know how to save a life in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest emergency.
This bill allows flexibility for the schools - CPR can be taught during health class, PE, or anytime throughout the school day. The training can be administered by any teacher or an outside instructor. The teacher administering the training does not have to be a certified trainer and does not require students to achieve CPR certification. The bill simply allows students to understand and become familiar with the new “Hands Only” CPR instruction.
