Providing broad cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training to the community has been part of Hackensack Meridian Health’s educational offerings for years, including health care workers, fire fighters, police, teachers, recreational coaches, EMTs, and community members. Our goal is to train as many community members as possible to become American Heart Association CPR/AED certified.

Hackensack Meridian Health – Creating a Community of LifeSavers
Training in CPR and AED use to students is offered at no cost to the school or student. Hackensack Meridian Health’s Community of LifeSavers Program is an award winning program that has reached students throughout Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex counties since 2014.
Additionally, the program is designed to build a sustainable CPR training infrastructure; Hackensack Meridian Health will train staff from each school district as a CPR Instructor, enabling them to train additional teachers, administrators and students in their district.
