Helping Students Make Communities Safer through CPR Training

Idaho Power and the American Heart Association (AHA) are making our communities a little safer by donating CPR training kits to 14 local schools and school districts across Idaho. The state’s health curriculum requires CPR training for staff and students, but budget constraints can leave schools with outdated or too few supplies.

Time is critical for someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest; so, the more people trained in CPR, the better. This is especially true in rural areas where immediate medical help may not be available.

On Feb. 25, Idaho Power and the AHA presented the first kit to grateful students and health teachers at Kuna High School. The full list of schools/school districts receiving kits includes:

  • Buhl High School
  • Camas County School District
  • Carey School
  • Century High School
  • Hagerman Junior/Senior High School
  • Jerome Joint School District
  • Kuna High School
  • Lighthouse Christian School
  • North Valley Academy
  • Pocatello/Chubbuck School District
  • Richfield School
  • Twin Falls School District
  • Wendell High School
  • Xavier Charter School
