MI HEART Safe School Awards

            The Genesee County Health Department would like to congratulate Genesee County schools which have been named a MI HEARTSafe School by the Michigan Departments of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and Education (MDE), American Heart Association (AHA), Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) and Michigan Alliance for Prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death of the Young (MAP-SCDY) which recognizes schools that are prepared to respond to cardiac emergencies. We salute each school for their efforts to ensure the safety of our students.

In order for a school to receive a MI HEARTSafe designation, the school must perform at least one cardiac emergency response drill per year; have a written medical emergency response plan and team; have current CPR/AED certification of at least 10 percent of staff; have accessible, properly maintained and inspected AEDs with signs identifying their location; and ensure pre- participation sports screening of all student athletes using the current physical and history form endorsed by the Michigan High School Athletic Association.
