Free CPR Training at City National Plaza

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.
