State Senator Jose M. Serrano & the American Heart Association to Sponsor FREE Hands-Only CPR Training. Senator Serrano and The American Heart Association are sponsoring an important FREE hands-only CPR training for the community. Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a leading cause of death in the U.S.- but when ordinary people, not just doctors and EMTs, are equipped with the skills to perform CPR, the survival rate can double, or even triple. Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location are at risk because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. You can help! They are offering TWO classes, one at 3:00 PM and another at 3:30 PM on Thursday, October 2, 2014. Each class runs approximately 30 minutes. This course is a NON-CERTIFIED CLASS. Participants will receive a presentation designed for informational purposes and will not result in CPR certification. Senator Serrano's District Office, 1916 Park Avenue, Suite 202, (between E. 130th & 131st Streets). For more information or to RSVP, please call George Damalas from Senator Serrano's Office at (212) 828-5829 or email Scheduler.Serrano@gmail.com and let him know which session you wish to sign up for.
