On May 24, students learned vital life-saving information during Northport High School’s CPR-AED Awareness Day. Volunteers, composed of sports medicine, IB students, and representatives from the Northport Fire Department’s Smokeaters, set up stations in the commons to inform their peers the action necessary in an emergency.

Students learned by demonstration how to use an AED machine, how to perform CPR with their hands, and tips regarding how to be prepared in an emergency. In addition, students added painted handprints to a banner hanging in the commons that read “My hands can save a life, can yours?”
