DC Be Ready FREE CPR, AED, First Aid Training


The DC Be Ready Safety Training Campaign's goal is to provide FREE training in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), First Aid, and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) equipment to District of Columbia residents and people that frequently visit the District. Training people how to respond to and prepare for emergencies is a core mission of Serve DC.  

CPR training is administered under the American Red Cross Guidelines. CPR is a lifesaving technique in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped. CPR is a combination of chest compressions and rescue breathing (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation). 

First Aid training gives you the information and skills you need to help adults and children during many emergency situations. Utilizing the American Red Cross training method of a hands-on skills session, our first aid training delivers the latest information. 

AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is a portable lightweight device that checks the heart rhythm and can send an electric shock to the heart to try to restore a normal rhythm.  AEDs are used to treat sudden cardiac arrest.
