PCHS presented with mannequins and AED

Mended Hearts Inc. is proud to present Pickett
County High School with 27 mannequins and one automated
external defibrillator trainer. Each year high
school sophomores and seniors will be taught CPR and
how to use an AED.
The Cookeville Chapter 127 of Mended Hearts Inc. is
a volunteer organization dedicated in offering encouragement,
education and support to people who have
been diagnosed with heart disease. If someone is having
bypass heart surgery at Cookeville Regional Medical
Center one of Mended Hearts visitors will be with
the family as a support group to explain what will be
happening that day. The Mended Hearts motto is "It's
Great To Be Alive And To Help Others".
Cookeville Mended Hearts Chapter 127 has extended
its services outside of Putnam County by presenting
AEDs and mannequins to high schools in Cumberland,
Fentress, DeKalb, White, Putnam, Jackson, and now
Pickett County. To this date 49 AEDs has been presented
to churches and schools in this area. Cookeville
Mended Hearts chapter 127 now has a satellite club in
Jamestown.
