The School System of Philadelphia has entered into a partnership with the Save A Life Foundation (SALF), and the Philadelphia Schools Health and Safety Department that will teach students basic first aid skills. Through the partnership, students will receive two hours of training in Basic Life Supporting First Aid skills, including Scene Safety. Rescue Breathing, Bleed Control, CPR (infant, child, adult). Abdominal thrust for choking victims (Heimlich maneuver) and introduction

Philadelphia Schools CEO Paul Vallas approved the program, which has been taught in schools throughout the nation. SALF is a 501 (C3) not-for-profit foundation that has provided age-appropriate programs to more than 1.6 million
children K-12 since its inception in 1994.

The SALF/Philadeiphia Schools partnership and its importance in the overall preparedness of the Philadelphia School System, is underscored by the widespread success of the SALF training. Last year SALF taught more than 67.000 students in over 300 Chicago Public Schools, and over 200.000 in seven states. SALF is interested in duplicating this success in Philadelphia, and intends
to expand the pilot program throughout the school system this coming year

SALF is funded through federal, state and private donations to train children at

SALF is extremely pleased to enter into this important partnership with Philadelphia Schools, designed to provide LSFA training to students as an integral part of their education. We believe it is yet another important tool to help improve the health, safety, and survival of our youth, and look forward to a long
and mutually beneficial relationship.
