National Texas Two Step CPR Training throughout Miami-Dade and Broward

Education, Community Event, Health & Wellness/Nutrition

Texas Two Step CPR is an annual event whose purpose is to engage the public and educate them on the benefits of compressions-only/hands-only Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Training will take place at the Miami-Dade county locations on Saturday the 24th and Sunday the 25th. The Broward county event will take place only on Saturday the 24th. During 5-minute training sessions, participants learned how to act quickly in the event of cardiac emergencies by following two easy steps: 1) Call 911 and 2) Initiate hands-only CPR. Compressions-only CPR is easy to perform, and can be done by the layman in emergency situations in order to buy time until Emergency Medical Services arrive. The event was created by a group of medical students in 2016 after recognizing the need to train more Texans in lifesaving, hands-only CPR. In its inaugural year the event trained more than 4,200 individuals. To date, this project has trained over 10,000 people in the use of compressions-only CPR with the help of more than 1000 medical students. To learn more, please visit https://www.tx2stepcpr.com
