Save a Life: The Texas Two Step Offers Free, Hands-Only CPR Training

This Saturday, more than 20,000 Texans will gather in locations across the state to learn how to save lives.

The Texas Two Step, a free, 20-minute training session in hands-only CPR, will teach participants how to act quickly to save a life by taking two steps:

  1. Call 911.
  2. Begin hands-only CPR by pushing hard and fast on the center of the chest.

Heart disease is the #1 killer of Texans with four out of five cardiac arrests occurring at home. CPR saves lives, but most people are unprepared to help when a loved one, friend or colleague needs CPR. Texas Two Step CPR Training will provide free life-saving training for Texans.

Hosts for this family event are Texas College of Emergency Physicians, Texas Medical Association, American College of Emergency Physicians, HealthCorps, and MaveRx.

For a full list of the locations and more on this event, check out the TCEP's Texas Two Step event website.
