Community CPR Program

Friends and Family CPR

The City of Fort Myers Fire Department offers a free class on compression's only CPR.  This class is taught through the year at multiple locations.  Our goal is to train and prepare members of the community with basic life saving techniques.  

Family & Friends CPR is for people who want to learn CPR but DO NOT need a CPR course completion card to meet a job requirement. This course is ideal for community groups, new parents, grandparents, babysitters, and others interested in learning how to save a life. 

In a cardiac arrest, every second counts.  A cardiac arrest can happen anywhere.  Every minute CPR is delayed a victim's survival rate decreases by 10%.  By learning and using the skills in this course the chance of survival can double or even triple.

  • Adult CPR with Breaths (optional)
