Community initiatives center on educational public outreach and providing medical support during city events. The department proactively raises awareness of hands-only CPR through training and education, provides emergency medical services during mass events through logistical planning and execution, as well as volunteerism. The Department continuously focuses on improving public health and safety in conjunction with several Chicago based organizations.
