Probably you already know that if anyone has a heart attack, the quicker CPR is begun the better because it helps maintain blood flow to the heart and brain, and that improves the chances of the heart attack victim recovering.
FDNY EMS (Emergency Medical Services) Officers have a program for training New Yorkers in non- compression CPR which is available throughout all 5 Boroughs. This is the easy form of CPR to learn and it is very, very helpful if someone is having a heart attack. Yes Conventional CPR is also good but non-compression CPR is very easy to remember and the first step in the process is to call 911 so even as you starts compressions help is already on the way.
Go here FDNY CPR Training to read about it in more detail and through this page logon to register for training.
If you have a group of friends who want to learn with you you can arrange for a special bystander training program.
Along with the training you get an app for your smart phone that will help you carry out CPR if the need arises. LIKE getting training that helps fellow New Yorkers.
