CPR/AED Training for Coaches

From the Boston Globe:

Though the association that oversees high school sports requires coaches to undergo first-aid training, regulations are not the norm among the patchwork of youth leagues and teams serving hundreds of thousands of children across the state.

In some communities, however, fire departments and hospitals are reaching out to train youth coaches. And legislation now on Beacon Hill would require all high school coaches to be certified in CPR and the use of an automatic external defibrillator.
