World Restart a Heart Day - 16th October 2018

World Restart a Heart Day Tuesday 16th October 2018

Restart a Heart is a designated yearly day of action with the aim to teach vital life-saving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills to as many people as possible.

This year, Restart a Heart is going global! For the first time, it will be called World Restart a Heart under the oversight of ILCOR – with support from resuscitation councils covering America (North, Central and South), Canada, South Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, as well as Europe. Once again, it will take place on 16 October, although events will occur on and around that date. 
Help us to reach our target this year of training 1000 people on the Isle of Wight in how to help save a life.

Last year our efforts were recognised by the Resuscitation Council (UK):…/communit…/small-island-big-heart

This year we intend to be bigger and better!

Invitations are being sent to schools for years 6, 9 & 10 and to home educated children to attend our free, interactive CPR training.

These sessions will be delivered by Isle of Wight NHS Trust staff, supported by our Community and Co First Responders.

Thanks to the IW Fire & Rescue service we have eight different venues to offer.

We are also offering free sessions to the public at St Mary's Hospital throughout the day and between 15:00-17:00 at the eight fire stations:
