One Voice Wales and Save a Life Cymru are working together to encourage communities across Wales to understand the importance of learning CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) and using a defibrillator.
Every year in Wales, over 6,000 people will have a cardiac arrest and at least 80% of those will happen in the home. Currently less than 5% will survive a cardiac arrest if it happens in the community.
There is no telling who will be next and it can happen suddenly to anyone at any age.
Save a Life Cymru’s mission is to equip the people of Wales with lifesaving CPR and defibrillation skills to help reduce the number of people who die as a result of a cardiac arrest. We can only achieve this if we all work together.
Llangybi Community Council is proposing to hold a face-to-face training session in the village hall after all the COVID pandemic restrictions have been lifted.
In the meantime, we are providing information as well as a link to an online training video in the use of a defibrillator. Please click here for more information.
