CPR Resources

Request CPR Kits from the Library

The Bills Foundation, Highmark, Lawley Insurance, and the Buffalo and Erie County Public libraries placed American Heart Association CPR Anytime Kits in every library in Erie County.

Use the link below to request CPR Kits from your local Buffalo & Erie County Public Library!

Find a Course

Find trainers close to where you live.

Recommendation: if individuals need certification for work purposes, we recommend the Heartsaver course (it is OSHA approved); if they just want to know how to properly provide CPR with rescue breaths, CPR Friends & Family Anytime is a non-certification that still covers the basics and AED usage.
