Restart a Heart Day is all about getting the message out there that with the right first aid information and techniques, it is actually possible to restart someone’s heart and ultimately, save their life.
Through raising awareness of some very simple CPR skills and the importance of venues and organisations having access to defibrillators, Restart A Heart Day is trying to reduce the current statistic only 1 out of every 10 people who suffer a cardiac arrest will survive.
With the Australian Heart Foundation as one of the primary partners the message is a testament to the importance of having up-to-date First Aid CPR skills. With the number of victims suffering a heart attack seemingly on the rise, as a community it is essential that we learn the skills to save a life in addition to reinforcing to the public the lifestyle choices you can make to help prevent a cardiac arrest.
First Aid Accident and Emergency has been a long term advocate of educating the community on CPR Skills through offering free community CPR Courses. We also provide defibrillators to venues and train them on how to use the life-saving device. We provide a specialised package to our clients involving the inclusion of a new defibrillator and a CPR course which can train an individual or a whole team on how to effectively use the machine and save someones life.
