Having a near death experience was a real wake up call for Ian and Donald who realised how vital up-to-date CPR training now was in saving lives. In Nov 2018 they got together (8 weeks after Ian’s sudden cardiac arrest) to host their first CPR Friendly BBQ providing training for 30 family members and friends.
CPR Friendly BBQs are ideal for family and friends of all ages to get their loved ones up to speed and a little more CPR friendly. As 80% of sudden cardiac arrests happen at home, it is comforting to know your loved ones are more confident in their CPR skills. A short CPR information session of 30-60 mins is ideally followed by drinks and a fun social BBQ. As mentioned, our inaugural CPR friendly BBQ was hosted in November 2018 with 30 family and friends.
