The Duluth Fire Department is kicking off an effort to turn residents into lifesavers.

The American Heart Association awarded the city with a grant that gave them 500 hands-only CPR training kits.

For the next six months, you can take one home if you pledge to teach others. 

"People can come and learn the hands-only CPR and if they will take the pledge to teach 5-7 people, they will take a kit home and teach those people for us so we can get our numbers up," said Sandra Merritt with the Duluth Fire Department.

They plan to train 3,000 residents in this form of CPR over the next six months. 

Upcoming community trainings:

  • Monday, May 12 (6-7 p.m.) - City Center West/Evergreen Center, 5830 Grand Avenue
  • Monday, June 9 (6-7 p.m.) - Lafayette Square Recreation Center, 3026 Minnesota Avenue
  • Monday, July 14 (6-7 p.m) - Morgan Park Community Recreation Center, 1242 88th Avenue West
  • Thursday, July 17 (TBD) - Water Expo, Park Point Beach House, 5000 Minnesota Avenue
  • Monday, August 11 (6- 7 p.m.) - Portman Community Recreation Center, 4601 McCulloch Street
