Bystander Response Trainings

Description

Before first responders arrive, you can save a life by knowing how to provide hands-only CPR, administer Naloxone, and stop bleeding.

This two-hour class will teach participants how to identify someone who has overdosed from opioids, gone into cardiac arrest, or has uncontrolled bleeding. The training is free and no medical background is needed. To learn more or sign up, click here.

In partnership with the New Orleans Health Department.
