No Advance Registration Needed!

Hands For Life New Canaan is back!


In 2013, nearly 1,000 community members came together and learned to save a life through Hands-Only CPR and AED use at Hands for Life New Canaan. 


The New Canaan YMCA, New Canaan EMS, and New Canaan CERT are proudly joining forces to provide this life-saving training to our community once again! 


Hands For Life New Canaan is free and open to all!  

Training takes only 25 minutes!  No advance registration needed!

The Goal

Train as many community members as possible in Hands-Only CPR and AED. 

The Impact

Empower community members to take action when someone is experiencing cardiac arrest and save lives!  


Hands-Only CPR can double or even triple chances of survival for a cardiac arrest victim.  

The Facts

  • Each year more than 350,000 cardiac arrests happen in the United States outside of the hospital.

  • About 90% of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die.

  • CPR, especially performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.


Learn Hands-Only CPR & AED

in 15 minutes!

Hands for Life New Canaan 2024 is a free community training event in Hands-Only CPR and AED use presented by the New Canaan YMCA, New Canaan EMS, and New Canaan CERT.


Join us on April 28 from 10am-4pm and in just 15 minutes you can feel prepared and empowered to act in a cardiac emergency situation and save a life!


In 2013, nearly 1,000 individuals attended Hands For Life New Canaan and were trained in Hands-Only CPR and how to use an AED device.


We're hosting this event once again to empower our community members and save lives! 


All are encouraged to attend!
