    In honor of Bills’ Damar Hamlin, ResusciTech is donating 1,000 CPR training certificates



    The quick action of trainers and first responders at Paycor Stadium one week ago helped save the life of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin after he went into cardiac arrest.

    Now, one company wants to give the Bills Mafia a chance to get CPR certified for free.

    On Sunday, January 8, ResusciTech, the CPR training and certification platform, announced it is donating CPR certificates to 1,000 people who successfully complete training using their app.

    “We were among the millions of people across the country who watched in horror as Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field after suffering cardiac arrest during Monday Night Football. Fortunately, with the help of CPR and an AED, first responders were able to bring the Buffalo Bills’ safety back to life,” said ResusciTech co-founder and CEO Abigail Kohler. “After witnessing these on-field heroics and the outpouring of support and generosity from football fans in the following hours and days, we knew we wanted to give others that same amazing power to save someone’s life.”

    ResusciTech’s Smart Certification™ app enables users to become CPR trained and certified in 90 minutes or less using just a couch cushion and a smartphone. Users who download the app have access to informational videos and learning activities. Smart Certification™ gives them guided, hands-on chest compression practice with real-time feedback. Upon a  successful skills evaluation, users can choose to receive CPR certification that follows OSHA and American Heart Association guidelines.

    The training material an app are all free and available to anyone who wants to learn CPR and practice chest compressions. For those who want or need proof of certification, there is normally a $75 fee. However, ResusciTech is waiving that fee for the first 1,000 people who sign up and enter the code DAMAR3. After those certificates are claimed, ResusiTech is offering $10 off the certification fee until March 1 for anyone who enters the code FOOTBALL10.

    “The people of Buffalo – who have persevered through more than their fair share of devastation these past several months – know all too well an emergency can happen anywhere at any time. As they are once again touched by tragedy, we wanted to show them our support and give back in a meaningful way,” Kohler said.”CPR saves lives and the more people we have who feel empowered to take action during an emergency situation the better off we all are. If we can give someone the extra confidence they need to save a life, we’ll consider that a success.”
