Hands-Only CPR Can Save Lives

Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR. As a bystander, your actions can help by giving Hands-Only CPR when you see a teen or adult collapse. 

Volunteer With Heart

The American Heart Association depends on the time and talent of volunteers to help us create a healthier world, free of heart disease and stroke. Whatever your capabilities, interests or schedule may be, we can find a volunteer opportunity that's right for you.
