Free CPR Program

The FDNY Free CPR Program offers New Yorkers a 30-minute class on hands-only CPR (please note: this program does not offer CPR certification). The free classes are taught throughout the year by certified FDNY EMS members at various locations. To date, the program has successfully trained thousands of New Yorkers in this lifesaving technique.

Program participants are provided with the following:

  • Skill demonstrations and hands-on practice for performing hands-only CPR
  • Basic instruction on how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED)
  • Additional information for identifying a person in need of CPR and other resources
