The American Heart Association determined that cardiac arrest survivability is greatly increased by inducing quality chest compressions upon incident. While waiting for EMS help to arrive, bystanders can provide compression-only CPR, and it takes only 10 minutes to learn, hence the training's name: Take 10. Take Heart Boston is a public outreach program inspired by Take Heart America where Brewster team members train public citizens in this life-saving CPR technique.

Brewster Ambulance Service has already had a multi-state, multi-regional impact by training over 5,000 citizens—from ages 11 and up—this simple-to-learn chest compression CPR technique. Our Take Heart rollout is a “train the trainer” approach, where we create scale by educating the public about this life-saving technique and encouraging them to pass that training on to others, making nearly everyone capable of saving a life.

A “Take 10” class instruction course held at Roslindale Community Center.
