CPR Anytime Program

Click here to sign up for the CPR Saturdays class, which is held the first Saturday of the month at Milton Fire Station No. 43.

The CPR Anytime line of self-directed learning products was developed to increase CPR knowledge and awareness among the general public and/or for those who do not traditionally attend CPR courses.

Currently:

  • Almost 80 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur at home and are witnessed by a family member.
  • Only 6.4 percent of sudden cardiac arrest victims survive because the vast majority of those witnessing the arrest are people who do not know how to perform CPR.

CPR Anytime is a tool that can help increase survival rates in communities across the country. People who receive the CPR Anytime kits are able to share lifesaving skills with their loved ones by using the kit to train their entire family. Using a multiplier effect, studies have shown that for every single CPR Anytime kit used for training, an average of 2.5 people learn how to perform CPR.

The American Heart Association's CPR Anytime personal learning programs include Family & Friends CPR Anytime and Infant CPR Anytime for families and community members. It also offers Heartsaver AED Anytime, a credentialed program that can be used in worksites to teach CPR skills and use of an automated external defibrillator.

In addition, Milton is a “Heart Ready City.” This is a prestigious designation given to cities that are committed to community-based programs that improve the "Cardiac Chain of Survival" for their residents.

Milton maintains this distinction through community CPR programs and other public outreach initiatives, including:

  • Enhanced 911
  • Emergency Medical Dispatch System
  • CPR/AED training
  • AED promotion
  • AED tracking
  • Fire-Rescue Department responders AED equipped
  • Law Enforcement Units AED equipped
  • Advanced Life Support services
  • Outcome Measurement

We encourage our community members to participate with us. If you have any questions about this educational initiative or any other program, please call the Fire Marshal’s Office at 678.242.2541.
