Janet's Law- Emergency Action Plan for
Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Janet’s Law refers to a bill that was recently enacted in memory of Janet Zelinski, an 11-year old who died of sudden cardiac arrest following a cheerleading squad practice. The provisions of the bill apply to athletic events and activities that take place through public schools. In brief, Janet’s Law requires public schools to have automated external defibrillators for youth athletic events and to establish certain plans relating to sudden cardiac events. Attached is the Emergency Action Plan for Wood-Ridge Schools. The appendixes are not included in this published document and only available in the respective schools.
