VOLUNTEERS from St John Ambulance are giving people in Ealing the chance to learn how to help someone in cardiac arrest.

They are staging a series of life-saving demonstrations for the Restart A Heart campaign.

In Ealing, they are being staged on:

October 13: Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre, 10.30am-4.30pm

October 14: St John Ambulance Southall and Norwood, St John’s Church Hall, off Havelock Road, Southall 7-8pm and

October 17: The same venue, 7-8pm.

The sessions are free and will include practical information on how to deliver Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and deliver shocks to the heart with a defibrillator.

Currently, fewer than one in 10 people in the UK survives a cardiac arrest out of hospital and St John Ambulance and its Restart A Heart partners want to change that. 

Chances of survival double when someone gives immediate CPR.
