Flash Mob & FREE CPR Training to Celebrate CPR Week


Got a minute? Then you can learn how to help save someone's life. During National CPR Week, the American Heart Association, DC Fire and EMS, All Heart Training, and WASH-FM with support from DC City Council will hold a press conference and a free hands-only CPR training to raise awareness about the critical importance of learning CPR.

Each participant in the training will receive a Family & Friends® CPR Anytime® Personal Learning Program that allows anyone to learn the core skills of CPR in just 20 minutes using their own personal kit. The kit contains everything needed to learn basic CPR, AED skills, and choking relief anywhere, from the comfort of your home to a large group setting. The American Heart Association is also seeking people to join the flash mob.
