Everyone in Herefordshire can react to support a life and alert qualified medical assistance in emergency situations.
To ensure that more people survive a heart attack or other life-threatening emergencies by providing quality training and imparting the confidence to act.
The objectives of Herefordshire Heartstart are the advancement of education and the protection and preservation of life by:
- Increasing local public awareness of the need for emergency lifesaving support training.
- Arranging and providing courses and other opportunities for people to learn the essential knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to help them deal with emergency situations to the best of their ability.
