Jersey City Medical Center EMT Henson Barnes demonstrates CPR to 7th grade students at the Cordero School (PS 37) in Jersey City as part of the hospital and the American Heart Association's goal to teach this life-saving program as part of its Family and Friends program. About 75 students participated.

Jersey City Medical Center EMS donated to each student a Family and Friends CPR Anytime Kit which included Mini Anne CPR learning Manikin, CPR-skill practice DVD, Adult and AED reminder card, Choking child CPR reminder card, Mini Anne spare lungs, and Manikin wipes. CPR is an emergency procedure performed to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person in cardiac arrest. For every minute CPR is delayed, the person loses 10% of his/her chance at survival.
