Learn the Maneuver, Save a Life!

Anyone Can Be a Heimlich Hero

Kids as young as seven have been in the news saving lives with the Heimlich Maneuver®. Others learned the Maneuver at a
young age and then used this knowledge many years later. This lesson lasts a lifetime!

Heimlich Heroes supports and works with teachers and school nurses across the nation, instructing kids and adults on choking safety and response.

Consider training in the same grade every year at the elementary level and again when in the 8th grade or above. This reinforces the lesson to last a lifetime.

There are many ways to run this one-hour training:

  • Schools have allowed high school students in Certified Nursing Assistant or Emergency Medical Technician programs to learn our program and then work cooperatively with the school nurses or health teachers to teach the students at the elementary and middle school grades.
  • Other schools have provided the lesson portion in the classroom and the hands-on practice at a health/safety fair.
  • Classroom by classroom
  • Entire grade level all at the same time

Available for use in Schools, Home School Co-Ops, and University level programs for student nurses and student health/PE teachers.



Heimlich Heroes works with the YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, American Heritage Girls, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and 4-H club leaders to teach the choking safety and response lessons needed for scouting badges and needed for life.

Consider repeating this training each year to catch any newcomers in your organization. Great for use as an outreach event in your community or as a (supervised) leadership opportunity for your older members.

Also meets safety training requirements for organizations with this need.
