How to save a life

Are you AED certified? Well, 7-yr-old Logan is! Logan, shown here with Assistant Sergeant-at-Arms Lon Paresa, went through and passed the training. Here's what happened.

Logan's mom, Reena, who is the Office Manager for Rep. Blake Oshiro, signed up for the training last month. Logan tagged along, and the AED trainer, Pam Foster, invited Logan to participate. Logan learned the signs of a heart attack, how to call 911, how to administer CPR compressions, and how to use the defibrillator. She passed the training and received her Heartsaver AED certification card.

AED training is encouraged for school-aged children. Here's Logan with her proud mom, Reena! FYI - Automatic External defibrillators (AED) are located at the State Capitol on the Chamber level (ewa side), and the 2nd, 3rd and 4th levels (mauka side lanai).
