Registration is required for the free event.

Those who learn CPR are more empowered to act with confidence in the event of an emergency at home, work, or in the community.

The Cincinnati Bengals, the American Heart Association, Cintas and Kettering Health are educating our “Who Dey” community with lifesaving skills by educating fans in Hands-Only CPR.

Save the Dey

The American Heart Association is the worldwide leader in resuscitation science, education and training, and publisher of the official Guidelines for CPR. With nearly 3 out of 4 cardiac arrests occurring in homes, knowing how to perform CPR is critically important. More than 350,000 people in the US have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest every year. CPR, especially if performed immediately, could double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.

What is Hands-Only CPR?
Hand-Only CPR is a skill everyone can learn. It is as simple as calling 911 if you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse; and then pushing hard and fast in the center of the chest. Research has proven that Hands-Only CPR be equally effective as traditional CPR in the first few minutes of emergency response. Hands-Only CPR is not card credentialed CPR.
