These CPR kits contain a manikin and DVD disk so that the participant can review the material or show other family members CPR.

During the month of December of 2010 all 841 students at Delta High School were trained in CPR. This event marks the placement of 18 Public Access Defibrillators in schools across Hamilton. The Delta event was a great success in part due to the leadership provided by the Grade 12 Physical Education students who were trained as CPR Coaches. The CPR Coaches completed a day long training program in CPR and then were active instructors for the training of their fellow students.
