Restart a Heart Day campaign is observed on the 16th of October every year with the aim to encourage more people to learn CPR and life-saving skills through first aid training. 

Emergencies happen.

On ordinary days, for ordinary people, life can change in a heartbeat.

Imagine that you had absolutely no idea of what to do, never did first aid training, or let it go out of date.

Imagine that your course hadn’t given you confidence, had been old-fashioned, stuffy or irrelevant.

That is unthinkable to us.

We believe that no one should ever feel anything less than confident in dealing with an emergency. We will all have times in our lives when we are called upon to be a hero.

Time to learn CPR

CPR is the difference between life and death. By knowing what to do in an emergency situation, you could save someone’s daughter, brother, parent and loved one.

Watch this short video on how to perform CPR with updated Covid-19 guidance. You can also read more about CPR here.

Look out for a Defibrillator

Defibs (sometimes called Automated External Defibrillators or AEDs) are increasingly becoming available in workplaces and the community (public access defibrillation). With so many more AED’s available, it’s a great idea for everyone to know how to use a defibrillator.

Watch our short demo video below of how to use a Defib whilst performing CPR. You can also learn more about Defibs here.
