The guest speaker at the meeting was Paul Linza.  He presented information on a program sponsored by ACT which trains high school students to recognize a heart attack victim.  They are then trained in basic resuscitation technique in providing chest compressions.  The students also are trained in the use of AED (Automatic Electrical Defibrillators). Members in attendance were very appreciative of Paul providing this information.
