AMBULANCE VICTORIA HOSTING FREE CPR ONLINE EVENT
With Restart a Heart Day just around the corner, Ambulance Victoria is urging the Barwon South West community to learn how to save a life with free online CPR sessions at 7pm this evening (October 15).
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.
“We’ve dubbed October Shocktober, and we’re offering all Victorians a chance to learn basic CPR and how to use an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED),” Mr Marshall said.
“Registration is easy, free and it’s something you can do with the family in the living room.
