If someone dropped to the ground in front of you in sudden cardiac arrest, would you know what to do? Unfortunately, many would not.
A person suffering a sudden cardiac arrest needs immediate help with CPR and an AED (automated external defibrillator). Early CPR and AED use within the first minute doubles the chance of survival.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation wants to improve survival rates by teaching more people CPR and AED use, so that when someone has a cardiac arrest, there will be someone close by who knows what to do.
You can do your part. You can be ready to save a life.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation is offering three regional CPR/AED training events in BC in November. Everyone is welcome to take the free training. You can join them and bring your friends and family. Events will also have blood pressure checks and information on healthy lifestyles.
