National CPR and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Awareness Week, a nationwide initiative designated by the US Congress to promote the importance of CPR and AED training, begins June 1.
Thousands of New Yorkers suffer from sudden cardiac arrest each year. CPR and AED, if administered properly and in a timely manner, can greatly increase the chances of survival after such an emergency.
The American Red Cross in Greater New York offers a variety of CPR⁄AED classes throughout New York City, each providing the vital training to respond to these life−threatening situations with confidence.
To find a class near you, go to www.nyredcross.org⁄takeaclass. Note that class dates and times are subject to change.
