In Canada, a cardiac arrest happens every 15 minutes. If you see it happen, you are that person’s best chance to survive. World Restart A Heart day is here – be ready to act, learn the simple steps of Hands-only CPR. Join a worldwide movement of people willing to be difference-makers by learning CPR and how to use an AED.
What is World Restart a Heart Day?
On October 16th we will be celebrating the World Restart a Heart (WRAH) initiative with events all around the world taking place on or around that date. All seven constituent councils of ILCOR (the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation) including Heart & Stroke Canada are supporting a global initiative to increase awareness about the importance of bystander CPR and to also increase actual bystander CPR rates worldwide.
