Restart a Heart
In partnership with South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, we are offering free CPR training sessions to the Wiltshire football community on Wednesday 13 October 2021 at Green Lane Playing Fields.
Since the Demark v. Finland match in the EURO 2020 tournament, when Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch after suffering a cardiac arrest, there has been increased demand for CPR and defibrillator training.
The 'Restart a Heart' training will prepare you to help save a life in the event of sudden cardiac arrest.
Wiltshire referee, Adam Nunn, was Assistant Referee during the Demark v. Finland match on 12th June when Eriksen was resuscitated on the pitch.
Adam Nunn, said, “The Denmark match was a prime example of why we should all have lifesaving CPR training, and the need for defibrillators to be in as many locations as possible.
In the professional game there is equipment and medically trained people on hand to help, but at grassroots level this is not guaranteed. This is a good opportunity for the grassroots community to gain knowledge, practical skills and confidence for an emergency situation.
You never know when you might need the training, if the training is never used then great, but if it is used it could save a life.”
Spaces are limited so book your session now.
Sessions will take place on Wednesday 13th October at Green Lane Playing Fields, Green Lane, Devizes, SN10 5EP.
