12 Club members from Hillsboro High School were certified on April 14, 2015 by the Cornelius Fire Department CPR / AED classes. Students were excited to learn about life saving methods for adults and children, as well as how to use the Automated External Defibrillator. The AED was bi-lingual in English and Spanish and takes the guess work out of whether someone’s heart should be shocked when they are unconscious. Students also learned how to perform CPR on choking victims, and what to do when they approach an unconscious person.
