Restart a Heart Day

Free CPR sessions

With Restart a Heart Day this Friday [16.10], Ambulance Victoria is urging the Barwon South West community to learn how to save a life with free online CPR sessions at 7pm Tomorrow [Thurs 15.10].

Ambulance Victoria’s Regional Director of Barwon South West Terry Marshall said paramedics are on mission to improve cardiac arrest survival rates after research revealed a 50 percent drop in survival during the first three months of COVID-19 restrictions.

It comes as part of "October Shocktober" and teaches locals how to use an Automatic External Defibrillator.
