It’s time to get hands on for Restart a Heart Day.
Following the introduction of defibrillators across the park, on Tuesday 18th October from 11:30 – 12:30, we will be hosting a complimentary defibrillator training session for our occupiers, aimed at giving you the confidence to use the equipment should the need ever arise.
What is Restart A Heart Day?
Restart a Heart (RSAH) is an annual initiative led by Resuscitation Council UK which aims to increase the number of people surviving out-of hospital cardiac arrests. It is run in partnership with The British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, St John Ambulance, the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives, NHS England and Improvement, Save a Life for Scotland, Save a Life Cymru, and Northern Ireland Ambulance Service.
Why is it important?
Approximately 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen every year in the UK. Sadly, less than 1 in 10 people survive these cardiac arrests. Performing CPR can more than double the chances of survival in some cases.
The British Heart Foundation want more people to survive by making sure you know that when someone collapses and stops breathing, it’s important to call 999, perform CPR and use a defibrillator if there’s one available nearby.
You do not need to be first aid trained to attend the session as full instruction will be given by qualified personnel on the basics of CPR and practical guidance on how to use the AED’s.
