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.

Important Information: Submission of your request does not constitute a confirmation of our attendance at your event. Scheduling is on a first request, first serve basis. Your request must be a minimum of 14 days from the date of this request.

Table Set-Up is a traditional classroom type training session, that need be arranged at your place of venue. We will arrive prior to our scheduled start time to test the audio/video equipment, if utilized, and to display the mannequins. The class will begin at your scheduled time and include instructor led education with hands on practice.

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

Upon receiving the required information, we will send you a confirmation email stating your event has been officially scheduled or if an alternate date is needed. If you have special instructions, please include them in the “comments” box.
