Lancashire Lifesavers

£30,000 set to be invested in defibrillators across Lancashire

Lancashire County Council has teamed up with BBC Radio Lancashire and the North West Ambulance Service to teach YOU how to perform CPR on someone who has suffered a cardiac arrest.

Early CPR and defibrillation gives patients in a cardiac arrest the best possible chance of survival. which is why it’s so important that community access defibrillators are available in as many places as possible. 

Approximately 30,000 people in the UK suffer an out of hospital cardiac arrest every year and currently only one in ten people survive. However, if someone receives CPR very quickly following the cardiac arrest there is a significant increase in the chance of survival.
