If this sounds like an over the top statement, consider this. First Aid is often a forgotten skill until it is needed. It is a life skill we should all possess, as most people in a life-threatening emergency would willingly help if they had the knowledge and confidence to do so.
It is especially the case when it comes to friends and family members. There are many people we hear about that have regrets following an event where a person died. Some people believe it was their fault because they failed to make a difference.
However, by delivering CPR, they provided the best opportunity for that loved one, friend or stranger to survive.
What's More Important Than Saving Lives?
The Actions For Survival team is committed to doing just that and providing as much help as possible to ensure more lives are saved in New Zealand in 2022.
