Next Friday, June 2nd, from 10am to 11am, FREE CPR training will be provided courtesy of the brave and kind citizens from the Los Angeles Fire Department Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).
Please join us! Feel free to bring a friend.
This training opportunity is open to anyone willing to participate and is part of the LA County Heart Heroes initiative.
Launched last month by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, the 2023 Heart Heroes Campaign’s goal is to train 500,000 Los Angeles residents and workers in hands-only CPR by the end of the year.
According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 cardiac arrests occur outside of hospitals each year, and more than 70% happen at home, with only 40% of people receiving immediate help before emergency professionals arrive. Learning hands-only CPR can potentially triple the chance of survival for someone experiencing cardiac arrest.
The Heart Heroes 2023 campaign is a collective effort including the Los Angeles County Fire Department, the American Heart Association, the American Red Cross, LA City Fire and Police, and many others. They are working together to ensure every resident in LA County has the knowledge and skills to respond effectively in the event of a cardiac emergency.
This community activity is hosted by Coldwell Banker at 251 N Larchmont Blvd. Guaranteed Rate Mortgage will provide lunch after the training.
