Restart a Heart Day at Manor School

October 16, 2015

Today is European ‘Restart a Heart Day’, where the British Heart Foundation will be working with the Yorkshire Ambulance Service to train 92 secondary schools in the region, as part of a UK-wide effort to train 30, 000 students in CPR using the British Heart Foundation ‘Call, Push, Rescue’ CPR training kits.

Julian visited Manor CE Academy today to see the training taking place.

“It is great to see this initiative in action as currently if you suffer a cardiac arrest out of hospital in the UK, you have less than a 1 in 10 chance of survival. I would like to see every child given the opportunity to learn CPR in secondary school, just like in Norway where survival rates are up to three times higher than in this country.”

The British Heart Foundation who are behind this campaign want to ensure more people survive a cardiac arrest through a revolution in CPR and defibrillator awareness, to give more people the skills and confidence to act if they witness a cardiac arrest.

Alongside this Julian is working with AEDdonate in their campaign to make York ‘Heartsafe’, which is being launched in the near future. This is following their successful campaign in Harrogate where 11 defibrillators have been installed around the town centre over a four week period.

“I met with the AEDdonate team in my office to discuss the campaign, and to talk about how important public access defibrillators are to public safety. AEDdonate seek sponsorship for the defibrillators from local businesses, and I will continue to support them in any way I can. I am also meeting with the British Heart Foundation shortly to discuss the recently announced £1 million funding for public access defibrillator training nationwide to help make the public aware of the availability and effectiveness of these devices.”
