Could you Restart a heart?

 

Here at South East Coast Ambulance Service, we support the British Heart Foundation’s ‘Restart A Heart campaign every year.

Volunteers and members of staff use their free time to go in to schools and colleges to teach CPR to our children.

In 2018 we taught 10886 children CPR, a vital skill that can help save thousands of lives.

Unfortunately, due to the covid pandemic, last year this couldn’t take place and a whole academic year missed the opportunity of learning this crucial skill.  This year we are offering the option of virtual lessons as well as face to face lessons (depending on government guidelines) and all within current covid 19 restrictions.

We would love your school or college to get involved and get the children learning one of the most important skills they could leave school with.

How can I learn CPR?

 

We teach CPR at secondary schools and colleges across the South East every year for a week for Restart a Heart when restrictions allow.

In 2021 we are offering the option of virtual learning as well as face to face teaching.

Please contact restartaheart@secamb.nhs.uk for more information.

There are many other ways to learn what to do in the ultimate medical emergency.
