Please VOTE to help us Save Lives with Hands Only CPR

We have the opportunity to save even more lives but we need your vote!

The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation is in competition for a $100,000 grant through the website GOOD Maker.

If selected, this grant will be used to launch the High School CPR program and 50,000 students will be trained in Hands-Only CPR each year.  Did you know, if CPR is initiated within the first minute, survival rates increase by 87%? That is powerful.

Over 6,000 kids in the U.S. experience cardiac arrest each year.  By training high school students across Los Angeles, we will create a tremendously valuable resource.  An immediate response from bystanders while awaiting LAFD arrival is critical.  We can’t be everywhere within 1 minute but with thousands of trained high schoolers scattered throughout the City, THEY have the chance to make a real difference.

Please help us get one step closer to this CPR training program grant. 

All you need to do is go to bit.ly/vote4cpr to vote…it’s that simple.  Please vote and share with all your friends. 

Together, we can change lives.
