Berkmar High Recognized as 'HeartSafe School'

Children's Healthcare of Atlanta recognized the school as a school with a designated emergency response team.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta recognized Berkmar High School, among eight in Gwinnett County, as "HeartSafe Schools," during the 2011-2012 year.

Clinic workers and first responders recognized:

  • Berkmar High, represented by Candy Stanford
  • Chattahoochee Elementary, represented by Misty Higgins
  • Kanoheda Elementary, represented by Lizzie Hampton
  • Norcross Elementary, represented by Dwan Neal
  • Stripling Elementary, represented by Sonya Fouch
  • Snellville Middle, represented by Chandra Raab
  • Brookwood High, represented by Melanie Pickens

Becoming a “HeartSafe School” involves having a designated emergency response team trained in CPR and the Automated External Defibrillator (AED), holding an annual AED emergency drill, and requiring pre-participation sports physicals, among other requirements.
