Request a Presentation, FDNY CPR Program
Thank you for contacting the FDNY’s CPR Unit! CPR saves lives!
Our mission is to educate residents of NYC with the skills needed to save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest or heart attack. The FDNY Mobile CPR Training Unit is designed and equipped to travel throughout NYC and provide CPR classes at no cost. These classes are offered to groups or organizations, at their venue and must not be a personal residence. An AHA accredited instructor will teach compression only CPR (on adults only mannequins) with automated external defibrillation (AED) usage. It is a non certification class that combines audio/visual instruction with hands on participation. Each class size ranges from 15- 50 people and takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete. Larger groups can be accommodated by adding additional classes which would occur consecutively.

Presentation is geared towards fairs with larger groups, where there is no set time for instruction. We will arrive prior to the scheduled time and set a number of mannequins out for your guests. Once the event commences, your guests are free to take a place beside a mannequin where our instructors will commence teaching compression only CPR to that group. As one group leaves another group can take an empty spot and this will continue throughout your event
