United Fund Supports CPR Training at County Schools
In June of 2021, the Decatur County School Corporation was awarded a $1,000 Youth Grant from the Decatur County United Fund to purchase four CPR mannequins and supplies to provide CPR training to teachers, bus drivers, coaches, and students.

Immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac arrest per the American Heart Association.
