Learn CPR. Save a life.

Restart a Heart Day is a global initiative to raise awareness and education of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED's) in our community. 

2017 was the first year that New Zealand participated in the day but the fourth year of bringing people together across the world to learn how to save lives.

We hosted mock cardiac arrests and CPR demonstrations in both Midland Park and Masterton Town Square - watch this space for 2018 events. 

Restart A Heart Day sees us partner with Fire and Emergency NZ, St John NZ, Heart Foundation NZ and Health Promotion Agency.

Help spread the word about Restart A Heart Day

Did you know that each week on average four people suffer a cardiac arrest somewhere in Greater Wellington and Wairarapa?

The chances of someone surviving cardiac arrest go up hugely when bystanders get straight into administering CPR, and keep on doing it until help arrives. 

Sudden Cardiac Arrest can happen to anyone at any time.

It's time for New Zealanders to join together.

Make it your aim to know CPR, and increase survival rates before emergency services arrive.

Our Lloyd Morrison Heartbeat programme can teach your group or school CPR. Maybe that training will save the life of a friend, a colleague, or a stranger on the street. You never know when you'll need it, so it's best to be prepared.
