FREE LIFE SUPPORT SESSIONS - Marden Fire Station is holding a free "Restart a Heart" Life Support Sessions. Call in to the Fire Station in Pattenden Lane on Sunday 16th October and take part in FREE life-support session and learn basic skills to help you restart the heart of someone who has suffered a cardiac arrest.
The 30-minute sessions, run by the fire crew and supported by KFRS Emergency Life Support Instructors and Community Safety team, will include basic life-support training and CPR as well as a myth-busting session about defibrillators.
In the UK less than one in ten people survive a cardiac arrest and the Restart a Heart campaign aims to provide hands-on training to help increase these survival rates.
Cardiac arrests can occur anywhere, for example in the street, at work, or while exercising or doing other strenuous activity. Unfortunately, the vast majority happen at home, where family are the only witnesses and the ones with the chance to save their loved ones.
This initiative aims to teach people what to do should they face such a situation, to help increase the chance of survival.
Pop into the station at anytime between 10am and 4pm and in just 30 minutes you will learn what to do to potentially save a life.
