The Fire Department of New York offers free CPR training in New York City. The 45 minute classes, called “CPR-To Go” are held once a month at different public libraries around the city. CPR certification isn’t provided; instead the “primary goal is to raise awareness of the important of immediate action in response to sudden cardiac arrest”.

FDNY Training at Your Location
If you have a group of 6 or more people and an open space, you can arrange a time for the FDNY to provide CPR-To Go training at your location. The location must be non-residential – a gym, cafeteria, hall or conference room – so unfortunately you can’t host CPR parties at your home.
Training at New York Sports Clubs
The FDNY used to provide CPR-To Go classes at New York Sports Clubs, however contrary to the FDNY’s own web site, that program was suspended in 2010. CPR-To Go classes are no longer held at NYSC.
