Get some hands-on, hands-only CPR training for free, in honor of National CPR Week.

The American Heart Association is collaborating with the Los Angeles County Emergency Medical Services Agency to coordinate a countywide effort to instruct hands-only CPR.

Throughout the week, emergency responders and healthcare providers will be going out to demonstrate and teach how to save a life.

The Santa Monica Fire Department will join the effort by hosting a CPR training session on June 4 at Santa Monica Place.

The training takes roughly five minutes and participants will practice on mannequins.

The information learned will be valuable in an emergency but will not result in CPR certification, public safety officials said. However, information on how to get certified will be available. For more information call (310) 458-8651.
