Sidewalk CPR Day

The Burbank Fire Department will provide free hands-only CPR training on Sidewalk CPR Day, on Thursday, June 1, 2017 from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm at Palm Avenue and San Fernando Boulevard. Learn how to save a life with a quick lesson from Firefighters and staff from Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center.

Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can triple a victim’s chance of survival. The Burbank Fire Department is glad to team up with the Los Angeles County Emergency Medical Services Agency and American Heart Association to bring Sidewalk CPR to our community.

Once trained, citizens are encouraged to download the PulsePoint app to receive notifications that someone nearby needs CPR. For more information, visit www.pulsepoint.org.

Don’t be a bystander in a cardiac emergency – be a lifesaver! #SidewalkCPRLA
