Our aim is to save lives in the community by strengthening the chain of survival.
When someone suffers a cardiac arrest their life may depend on a bystander who has learned ELS skills.
The trained person can recognise what has happened, call for professional help, and perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), to buy the casualty time.
In most cases a defibrillator is required to restart their heart and this needs to be applied as soon as possible for the best chance of survival.
The Herefordshire Heartstart courses are free, and are available in your area. Have a look at our upcoming events and get in touch if you would like to participate in Emergency Life Saving Skills.
