On December 6, 2007, Congress passed a bill that designated the first week in June as “National Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Week.” This designation is intended to promote the necessity of CPR and AED training and to reduce death from sudden cardiac arrest.
The first week of June is National CPR and AED Awareness Week. This week is designed to bring attention to the importance of CPR and AED training.
Each year, the U.S. Fire Administration promotes National Arson Awareness Week during the first week of May "...to raise awareness of arson or youth fiersetting and provide individuals with strategies to combat these problems in their community."
