Hands-Only™ CPR

About

In January 2014, the City of Richmond was one of only five cities chosen by the American Heart Association and Cities of Service to receive 500 CPR Anytime Kits (or Hands-Only™ CPR training kits) to help turn more residents into lifesavers.

Nearly 400,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur annually in the United States, and 89 percent of victims die because they don’t receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. To help remedy this issue, Neighbor-to-Neighbor partnered with the Richmond Ambulance Authority, the Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority, and The American Heart Association of Greater Richmond to train 250 low-income public housing residents and 250 low-income Latino residents in Hands-Only™ CPR, thus equipping 500 residents with this life-saving training. Hands-Only CPR is a quick, easy way to save more lives. Each of the 500 trained volunteers will train a minimum of five additional people (2,500 people) in Hands-Only™ CPR for a total of 3,000 people trained. These trained volunteers will act as first responders in cardiac arrest emergencies, using their skills to more than double a community member’s chances of survival.

Impact

Future analysis of this preparedness will be evaluated.
