The City offers free CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) classes taught by a member of the FDNY Emergency Medical Service.
The skills necessary to perform CPR and use an AED are easy to learn and safe. With Compressions-Only CPR, the bystander is no longer required to perform mouth-to-mouth ventilations. The class provides hands-on practice with an instructional video, as well as a take-home DVD, key chain tags, and the free FDNY "Be 911" Lifesaver app as a reminder of what to do in an emergency.
This class is not for certification.
