World Restart a Heart Day: St John Ambulance UK will be teaching saving skills across the country
LONDON – Restart a Heart Day is taking place on Wednesday 16 October 2019, an annual event to teach as many people as possible the life saving skill of CPR.
During October, our volunteers will be running free demonstration sessions for the public across the country. Attendees can learn how to perform CPR and how to use a defibrillator. All St John Ambulance volunteers regularly practice CPR as part of the charity’s intensive first aid training and many have used their skills to save a life.
Restart a Heart is organised in partnership by the Resuscitation Council (UK), St John Ambulance, The British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, and Yorkshire Ambulance Service. Every UK Ambulance service will take part in the event, along with private training providers.
