Learn how to Restart a Heart this October 2018 with free
CPR demonstrations in your local area!
Our volunteer units will be opening their doors to help teach
thousands of people life saving skills
This Tuesday 16 October 2018 is Restart a Heart Day, an annual
event to teach as many people as possible the life saving skill of
We’ll be running free CPR training sessions across the
country from 9-23 October 2018.
Our local volunteer units will be running events for the public
to learn how to perform CPR and how to use a defibrillator.
Each session will last 1 hour and will include face-to-face
demonstration and practice time with our specialist volunteers.
All St John Ambulance volunteers regularly practice CPR as part
of the charity’s intensive first aid training and many have used
their skill for real to save a life – so they are among the best
people to pass on the skill to others.
We aim to teach 200,000 people the skills and confidence to help
save a life.
We’ll be announcing dates and locations for our sessions
shortly – so please check back soon!
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.
