CPR instructors and students at the last in-person Press The Chest training in 2019.

After a pandemic break, Press The Chest is returning in-person to the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center.

Leon County’s annual CPR event has trained nearly 15,000 people since it began in 2010.

Organizers say the event has helped push the sudden cardiac arrest survival rate in Leon County to 58%, significantly higher than the 18% national average.

The Press the Chest event is for training, not certification.

It’ll be held Saturday, May 14th, from 10 till noon. Click here to register for the free event.
