CNUSD Athletics Hosts Cardiac Arrest Training

In the Corona-Norco Unified School District, the safety of our students will always be our top priority. For our student-athletes, this means ensuring our fields, courts, and competition areas are secure and well-staffed with highly trained professionals who are ready to handle a variety of crises and emergency situations. As part of this commitment to student and athlete safety, this fall our Athletic Trainers and Directors from all five of our comprehensive high schools participated in a Cardiac Arrest Training Scenario at Centennial High School.   


Additional athletic safety measures at CNUSD include:

1. Certified Athletic Trainers: Each CNUSD high school boasts the presence of a certified athletic trainer, readily available during after-school activities, including practices and games. Their expertise and quick response are essential for the well-being of our student athletes.

2. Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs): Safety is further enhanced by strategically placing multiple Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) throughout all high school campuses. These life-saving devices are easily accessible in case of emergencies.

3. First Aid, CPR, and AED Training: High school administrators, coaches, and security personnel undergo comprehensive training in First Aid, CPR, and AED use. This ensures that there are capable hands ready to assist in any situation.

4. Emergency Action Plans (EAPs): Each high school within CNUSD maintains a site-specific Emergency Action Plan (EAP). Our personnel are well-versed in the procedures outlined in these plans, prepared to act swiftly in the event of their activation.

5. Mandatory Athletic Physicals: Prior to participating in CNUSD athletic programs, student athletes are required to complete an athletic physical. This ensures that our athletes are in optimal health and ready to engage in their chosen sports safely.

At CNUSD, we believe that excellence in athletics goes hand-in-hand with a commitment to safety. Our comprehensive safety measures and dedicated personnel reflect our unwavering dedication to the well-being of our student athletes.
