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 and pledging to share their knowledge with five others.
The FDNY Mobile CPR Unit will host bystander CPR Training sessions at your location for groups of 20 or more. Each participant will receive a key chain tag with a bar code that allows individuals to record the use of their CPR skills, access to a free CPR Smartphone App, a take home "Be 911" insutructional DVD and life saving skills.
With CPR Training, you can:
- Keep blood flowing to the heart and brain until an ambulance arrives.
- double the changes of someone surviving cardiac arrest.
- Save a loved one's life.
To form a group or schedule a training session for your community organization, please contact the FDNY Mobile CPR Unit at: (718) 281-3888 or check out the CPR To Go website.
¡Programas de capitación están también disponibles in español!
