From a press release:

“The Golden Triangle Business Improvement District and D.C. Fire and EMS Department are joining forces to see if they can get at least 200 people to learn CPR skills in one day in the neighborhood during the Golden Triangle CPR Challenge.

Hands-Only CPR involves training people to administer CPR to the beat of the classic disco song “Stayin’ Alive.” CPR can more than double a person’s chances of survival, and “Stayin’ Alive” has the right beat for Hands-Only CPR.

The CPR Challenge will take place Fri., Sept. 18 from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. in Farragut Park at Connecticut Avenue and K Street with quick 20 minute sessions, open to all area workers and residents. The training is easy; people can just walk up without an appointment. The sessions will be part of the BID’s Farragut Fridays.

“We encourage everyone to take part in this training. Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don’t receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. Bystanders will never know when they may need to administer CPR,” says Dr. Jullette Saussy, medical director, D.C. Fire and EMS Department.”
