The outcome of many medical emergencies can be improved by early care from a trained bystander. UNM Heart Emergency and Rescue Training (HEaRT) provides first aid, emergency decision-making and CPR and AED training in the community . 

HEaRT training can give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage a medical emergency until emergency responders arrive. Essential responsibilities of a first aid provider include: 

  • Recognizing a medical emergency


  • Making the decision to help


  • Identifying hazards and ensuring personal safety


  • Activating the EMS system


  • Providing supportive, basic first aid care


First aid does not require making complex decisions or having in-depth medical knowledge. It’s easy to learn, remember and perform.
