The Save a Life initiative is a collaboration between the Arlington Fire Department, Medical City Arlington and Texas Health Arlington Memorial hospitals.

In the City of Arlington, emergency medical first responders are always just a phone call away. The Arlington Fire Department prides itself on quick response times and our exceptional levels of emergency medical services delivery.

Despite the exemplary levels of service Arlington Citizens can expect from the AFD, we know the crucial role many citizens play just before medical first responders arrive. Performing CPR, applying an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) or providing point of wound care before the Fire Department arrives can save lives.

Knowing how crucial early intervention is in the pre-hospital setting, our goal is to teach these life saving techniques to as many Citizens of Arlington as possible. We have partnered with our local area hospitals to provide this training at no cost and aim to make it as convenient as possible for those wanting to learn.

Our Save a Life program is a hybrid class and can be tailored to your needs. The training covers the following topics:

  • Hands only CPR
  • AED use
  • Stop the Bleed
  • Narcan administration

For large groups, businesses or organizations, our classes are customized to fit your need and can cover all or a selection of the topics.  We can conduct the class on-site at your facility, or at the Arlington Fire Training Center.

For individuals wishing to participate in the training, classes are routinely held at the Arlington Fire Training Center or at Medical City Hospital in Arlington. Please enquire for the next available class.
