Why Get Involved?

One in five adults will in their lifetime witness someone collapse who needs immediate CPR, today in the UK every 5 minutes someone will have a heart attack. Basic first aid is essential and we believe everyone should be equipped with the knowledge and skills to know how to act in an emergency situation - for free.
