CPR Friendly BBQ
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 information session can be followed by drinks and a fun social BBQ. Our inaugural CPR friendly BBQ was hosted in November 2018 with 30 family and friends.
What people say
“It’s a no brainer! Great BBQ, very entertaining, lovely afternoon and plenty of laughs with a great bunch of people. And I feel confident and able to step up and do CPR now, rather than panicking. What more could you ask? Everyone should have a CPR friendly BBQ!”
“What a top excuse, a BBQ, drink and laugh (oh yeah, while we learnt some new skills). My family were delighted to be able to host a CPR Friendly BBQ with around 30 friends and family learning the life changing skills of CPR and the value of defibrillators. Everyone got to have a go on a manikin and one of us even bought a defibrillator for the back of the car.”
“I watched my father die at home as an 11 year old. If we knew CPR and had access to a defibrillator back then, I would probably have seen my dad live another 30 years. I'm now a passionate advocate of the CPR friendly community initiative. It’s a simple program, with such an enormous impact for everyone, anywhere. You learn in minutes what could save the life of your family and friend.”
