Broward County, Fla. –  In observance of World Heart Day, the Florida Department of Health in Broward County (DOH-Broward) and community partners will offer free “Hands-Only” CPR instruction on Tuesday, September 29, 2015. The public is encouraged to participate in this life saving event.  Certification is not offered for this course.

“Hands-only” CPR instruction takes only about 20 minutes and shows you how to keep a person alive using chest compressions until emergency responders arrive. The key is to give 100 chest compressions per minute. How fast is that? Do it to the beat of the Bee Gees “Stayin’ Alive.”

The free lessons are open to the public, and will be given at six different locations and times during the day and evening. Space is limited. For reservations call 954-213-0607. Walk-ins will be accepted if space allows. More information: Broward.floridahealth.gov/events
