Preparedness and Safety
Through Volunteer CPR, the City of Richmond has trained 2,000 low-income volunteers in Hands-Only CPR; qualified medical professionals train the volunteers. In turn, those volunteers committed to training 4,500 others – friends, neighbors, co-workers and family members – in the life-saving procedure. Through this work, Richmond has dramatically increased the number of CPR-trained residents and the community’s ability to respond to sudden cardiac emergencies.
"From the investment of personal coaching, peer-to-peer learning (i.e., group calls and webinars), and the power of solid impact service blueprints, the value of Cities of Service in helping cities stand-up and/or mature their impact volunteerism efforts is tremendous."Chief Service Officer Paul Manning
