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.

The FDNY Mobile CPR Unit will host bystander CPR Training sessions at your location for groups of 15 or more. 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. 

With CPR Training, you can:
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 form a group or schedule a training session for your community organization, please contact the FDNY Mobile CPR Unit at: (718) 281-3888 or visit the CPR website


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.
