Downtowners who have wanted to learn CPR, but always came up with an excuse not to, now have the opportunity to pick up the life-saving skill.
The American Heart Association is joining with the Los Angeles Fire Department and City National Bank to host a free CPR training event at City National Plaza on Tuesday, June 4.
Local firefighters and emergency responders will provide hands-only CPR training at 555 S. Flower St. in four 30-minute sessions from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. No RSVP is required and people can walk up and learn.
A representative for the event said that the goal is to teach 500 people. The event is part of a collaborative effort by local health and safety organizations to teach CPR to 100,000 Angelenos. So far, the partnership has provided training for 62,000 individuals.
