Where to Find CPR and First Aid Classes on Long Island

Parents, family members and caregivers are all responsible for another life when they are caring for a child.  Many emergency situations may require CPR such as suffocation, near-drowning, accidents and smoke inhalation. Staying calm and knowing what to do is the key to a good outcome.  Every second counts so preparation is important.

Please note that CPR procedures differ between infants, children and adults due to their varying sizes so people should learn each method. We’ve included an illustration on how to perform CPR on infants less than 12 months old. Nothing replaces hands on practice, and many classes allow participants to practice on dolls or dummies, so check out our list of where to find CPR and first aid classes on Long Island to find training sessions.
