Basic Training

Step in to help a paramedic save a life by following three easy steps:

  1. Call 9‑1‑1 for the paramedics.
  2. Start CPR:
    • Push hard and fast on the person’s chest to the beat of the song “Stayin’ Alive” (100–125 beats per minute).
  3. In a public place, ask for the AED (or public access defibrillator). Follow the instructions, and administer a life-saving shock if necessary.

The City of Toronto Services Safe City Program offers training programs at a variety of locations by certified instructors. We will arrange for an instructor to visit your worksite or specified location for your convenience or you can register online and attend a class at a number of locations across Toronto.
