FREE Red Cross "Hands-Only CPR" Training

Updated: Nov 29, 2021

Dear friends and neighbors, Please join me in attending a Free Red Cross Zoom training session, "Hands-Only CPR", to learn when and how to perform Hands-Only CPR. Please click HERE to register for this one-hour zoom on Monday, Nov 8th, 6:30 PM. Stephanie Dunn Ashley, CEO of Red Cross NY Region, will introduce our instructor Alex Poku who has personally trained 100,000 people in Emergency preparedness over the last few years. Program Description: The purpose of the Hands-Only CPR course is to teach untrained bystanders how to perform hands-only CPR. Most of us feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they don't know how to administer CPR or are afraid of hurting the victim. Anyone can learn Hands-Only CPR and save a life. There are no pre-requisites or minimum age to participate in this session. American Red Cross in Greater New York: Headquartered in New York City, the Greater New York Region serves more than 10 million people in New York City, Long Island, Rockland, Westchester counties and Greenwich, CT. They respond to approximately seven emergencies and disasters a day across the region—home fires, floods, building collapse and provide shelter, food, clothing, and emotional support at no cost to those in need. The five core services offered by Red Cross are Blood Services, Services to the Armed Forces (SAF), International Services, Life Saving Skills Courses, and Disaster Response. You can learn more about the Red Cross Mission by clicking HERE. Our Presenter Alex Poku has personally trained over 100,000 families, professionals, teachers, law enforcement, and people from diverse backgrounds in person and virtually. Since joining the Red Cross in 2014, he has trained individuals and families throughout the Greater New York area to be better prepared for disasters of all kinds. Last month he hosted a Zoom session on Emergency Preparedness for our community which was well received. We are lucky to have him again for this training session on Hands-Only CPR. Please register by clicking HERE, and I look forward to seeing you on Zoom on Nov 8th, 6:30 PM.

Sincerely, Harry Arora State Representative - District 151
