The Fire Department of New York announced that they are dedicating resources to help train 5000 high school students in the lifesaving skill of hands-only CPR! While the FDNY isn't funded to train every student, their support of the CPR in Schools movement is a huge boost to the effort. As the city and state consider the next steps for the CPR in Schools policy, having the FDNY devote such a significant level of time, funding and energy to the cause is pivotal. Thank you to the city for prioritizing the FDNY's CPR Unit to help train the next generation of lifesavers!
