According to the Free Press, starting next school year, all students in Michigan will now be trained to do CPR. If you're a kid, you'll have to go through a short CPR class at least once between 7th and 12th grade. I VAGUELY remember getting some training in CPR during a health class in junior high. And, contrary to everything Hollywood would have you think about the 70s, after that class, I don't remember any of the "cute girls" passing out, so that I had to awkwardly perform mouth to mouth on them.

I also remember, for a long time, it was "a thing" to remember to do CPR chest compressions to the same beat (100BPM) as "Stayin' Alive" from the Bee Gees. Which didn't help if your were never a fan of the Bee Gees and was clearly a ploy to save the disco music and club industry. Thankfully, that failed.

Good luck, give the dummy a funny name - and maybe you'll save a life someday.
