Event description

Description

The Washington Ethical Society is proud to bring the community a Hands on Hearts CPR Class provided by DCFEMS.


Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. As a bystander, your actions can only help.

DCFEMS offers this free class on the basics of hands-only CPR and AED awareness. The training instructs participants to focus on their hand placement, tempo and the number of compressions for two minute intervals.

Hands-only CPR is a technique that involves chest compressions without artificial respiration. Studies indicate that hands-only CPR performed immediately may increase a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.

Completing the training does not provide participants with certification in CPR or a certification card. Please visit our CPR Training Program for more information on certification.
