A total of 832 participants received the free training provided by local emergency response professionals and volunteers, through the “Hands Helping Hearts” campaign.

Santa Barbara County Medical Reserve Corps volunteers have joined with the County of Santa Barbara EMS Agency, Santa Barbara City Fire Department and American Medical Response to provide this important health and safety training to the community. This pilot public health program is designed to increase the survival rate of cardiac victims.

Those who missed the free Hands-Only CPR training at Fiesta can attend upcoming trainings at: Downtown Santa Barbara Farmer’s Market on Tuesdays through August 21st (State Street at Cota Street). Free trainings are also regularly scheduled at Paseo Nuevo Shopping Center, La Cumbre Plaza and outside of Tri-County Produce. For complete schedule, visit HandsHelpingHearts.org.
