Free CPR Program

FDNY Free CPR Program Sign Up

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

The course offers the following:

  • Basic instruction on performing hands-only CPR
  • Basic instruction on how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED)
  • Practice mannequins for use during class and take-home instruction for follow-up practice.
