Janet's Law - Emergency Action Plan for Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Janet’s Law refers to a bill that was recently enacted in memory of Janet Zelinski, an 11-year old who died of sudden cardiac arrest following a cheerleading squad practice.  The provisions of the bill apply to athletic events and activities that take place through public schools.  In brief, Janet’s Law requires public schools to have automated external defibrillators for youth athletic events and to establish certain plans relating to sudden cardiac  events.  Attached is the Emergency Action Plan for Ocean City Schools that goes into effect September 1, 2014.  The appendixes are not included in this published document and only available in the respective schools.
