Can you save a life?

November is CPR month so here’s our question for you – if someone in your family had a heart-attack, would you know what to do?

Here’s something to think about:

  • Between 70 & 80% of people lucky enough to get CPR get it from their family or friends
  • But only 1 in 7 Canadians know how to do CPR

Add those two facts and what happens?

50,000 (yes fifty thousand) people needlessly die every year in Canada.

That’s approx 1 person every 10 minutes. Sure you can’t save all 50,000 of them, but there’s a 3/4 chance that when your family member needs CPR, you’ll be the one stood next to them.

Would you know what to do?

If not, take the 4 hrs needed to find out by booking a course!

And do it right now, before it becomes another thing you regret not getting round to.
