FRUITA, Colo. (KKCO) - Hundreds of Fruita Monument High School students are learning how to save their lives by practicing health heart habits, but at the same time they are they are also learning how to save others lives, by learning CPR.

The Pulse Program gives high school students a chance to receive their CPR certification without ever having to leave school.

The training is done by local EMS professionals, giving students a chance to learn from real-life heroes.

The next school that the Pulse Program plans to visit is Grand Junction High School, sometime mid-April.
