The Janet Fund Accomplishments


Janet's law passed 9/21/12 and went into effect on 9/1/2014. Janet’s Law requires all schools in New Jersey to have an AED, trained responders, signs leading to the AED and an emergency action plan. It is the most comprehensive school AED law in the United States.


Over 415 AEDs have been donated throughout New Jersey by the Janet Fund.


Over 4000 people have been trained/certified in CPR/AED Use.

Teen CPR

Established a teen CPR/AED training session where youth ages 13-19 can learn CPR and AED use with their peers in an environment that is both supportive and comfortable.

12 Hour CPR/AED Training Marathon

Our CPR/AED Training Marathon in January 2007 lasted 12 hours and trained 101 people. Participants were certified in Adult and Child CPR and AED use, Infant CPR and Obstructed Airway. Each participant received the American Heart Association Heartsaver Certification. 101 people were certified that day ranging in age from 14 to 71! Participants included coaches, parents, grandparents, scout leaders and youth.
