Volunteer opportunity description
In recognition of September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, NYC Service and FDNY launched CPR Training - an initiative to increase the number of New Yorkers trained in CPR. Learning CPR in your community can potentially help a loved one, friend or co-worker. Volunteer your time and learn the skills that can save a life.
How It Works
The FDNY Mobile CPR Unit will host bystander CPR Training sessions at your location for groups of 15 or more. High school administrators can also request for their high school students to receive bystander CPR training and education on cardiovascular health through the Be 911: Teens Take Heart program.
Each participant will receive a keychain tag with a barcode that allows individuals to record the use of their CPR skills, access to a free CPR Smartphone App, a take home "Be 911" instructional DVD and life saving skills.
- Keep blood flowing to the heart and brain until an ambulance arrives
- Increase the chances of people surviving cardiac arrest
- Save a loved one's life
To request a class, contact the Fire Department at the information provided above. Please note that this opportunity is for free bystander training in CPR, not full CPR certification.
