The Mobile CPR Project was created to increase survival from sudden cardiac arrest. To do this we travel to you to teach you CPR. This program is an initiative supported by the City of Philadelphia and other partners such as the three local hospitals, the fire department and the police department.
We recently completed a successful pilot project in Hartford, CT, leading to our current work in Philadelphia. To see the earlier Hartford Mobile CPR Program in action, view the video here ——>
What puts the “mobile” in The Mobile CPR Project?
CPR training usually costs money and can take up a lot of time. It can also be difficult to find someone that teaches CPR. Our mission is to bring CPR to you at no cost. So how do you learn CPR? Contact us! We can schedule a training for you. We only ask that we have more than 10 people per training. This way, we train as many people as we can at once.
Our number one goal is to train you how to recognize a cardiac arrest and to learn CPR. Learning CPR can keep you and your family safe. Most of the time when someone experiences a cardiac arrest, it is in their home. If your family member experiences a cardiac arrest the best thing you can do is perform CPR, it can save their life!
Cardiac arrest and CPR:
Cardiac arrest is when the heart suddenly stops beating. This is different from a heart attack. Cardiac arrest can strike anyone at any time and most of the time it is fatal. As scary as this is, the best way to keep someone alive when their heart stops beating is to do CPR. A new form of CPR called Hands-Only CPR teaches people to do compressions without rescue breathing. This means you are no longer required to breathe for a victim, just use your hands to keep their heart pumping.

CPR Ready’s mission is to drastically improve the survival rate of people who experience out-of-hospital cardiac arrest by energizing and expanding existing resources and programs. To achieve this, they aim to increase the number of people who are knowledgeable and willing to perform bystander Hands-Only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and to use an automated external defibrillator (AED), when available.
