Three UCS schools have been honored for their work to be prepared to respond to cardiac emergencies. 

Utica, Stevenson and Henry Ford II high schools have earned the HEARTSafe School designation. 
To receive a MI HEARTSafe School designation, schools must have:

  • A written medical emergency response plan and team.
  • Current CPR/AED certification of at least 10 percent of staff and 50 percent of coaches, including 100 percent of head varsity coaches and P.E. staff.
  • Accessible, properly maintained and inspected AEDs with signs identifying locations.
  • Annual cardiac emergency response drills.
  • Pre-participation sports screening of all student athletes using the current physical and history form endorsed by MHSAA.

Utica High School was awarded the designation for the first time. Henry Ford II and Stevenson high schools were renewed for the school year.
