St John Ambulance’s volunteers in Romford are giving free demonstrations of life saving skills on October 13 and 15 as part of the Restart a Heart campaign.

On October 13, the Romford Cadets will be providing demonstrations at St John Ambulance, 3 Albert Road, Romford, RM1 2PD.

On October 15, volunteers from Havering Central Unit will be providing demonstrations at the same Romford venue between 8.30pm and 9.30pm.

These sessions, which last an hour, are free to attend and will include practical information on how to deliver Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and deliver shocks to the heart with a defibrillator.

Currently, only one in 10 people in the UK survives a cardiac arrest out of hospital and St John Ambulance and its Restart A Heart partners want to change that. 

Chances of survival double when someone gives immediate CPR and significantly increases further when a defibrillator is used.

The campaign will be promoted widely on social media. To join in the conversation, search for the hashtag #RestartAHeart.

To find out more about the campaign online and also to see a full list of demos please visit www.sja.org.uk/restartaheart.
