CPR Friendly – No time to get CPR certified? | At least get CPR friendly, in minutes
Words: Guyren Smith, Images: Ian Hutchinson
Last Sunday (23 June) we had 50 members of the local Probus Association join us for a discussion on CPR awareness. The session went exceptionally well and the engagement from those in attendance was great. As a group I think the presence in the room of 2 people that had been successfully resuscitated really brought into focus what we do.
CPR friendly is an initiative of a local Newport man who after having a sudden cardiac arrest riding around Narrabeen Lake, has taken on the task of trying to increase CPR awareness and defib access in the community.
Special thanks to the trainers who volunteered their Sunday morning to help out (Sandy Menzies, Jeremy Paul, Elaine Krek, Brendan Capell and Brendan Menzies)
