The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s LA County Heart Heroes 2023 Campaign has a goal to train 500,000 Los Angeles County residents and workers in hands-only CPR by December 31, 2023.
Training will be held throughout Los Angeles County, including sporting events, entertainment venues, churches, college and school campuses, worksites, malls, and other places throughout LA County communities.
Additionally, community members can become hands-only CPR trainers for their organization as part of the Heart Heroes 2023 campaign. As a partner, organizations will receive training in DPH’s hands-only CPR train-the-trainer session, support in training at least 150 individuals, and resources to promote hands-only CPR training.
Learning to perform Hands-Only CPR may help save the life of someone you know and love.
