In honor of National Preparedness Month, MARTA is hosting free life-saving skills to transit riders and its employees.
Representatives from MARTA’s police department will teach riders CPR skills, how to use automated external defibrillators and basic safety tips at Five Points MARTA station from 7 to 9 a.m. on Wednesday, according to a news release.
MARTA is hoping the campaign better prepares people for public safety scares, including violent acts and severe weather.
The transit authority is also partnering with Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, to share preparedness information with all MARTA employees in a private training session.
