Over 30,000 students taught CPR at Restart a Heart Day

Thanks to more than 600 volunteers, including HFR Solutions' own Tony Fill, more than 30,000 students are now trained in CPR. Restart a Heart Day 2022 brought together young people from 131 of Yorkshire's secondary schools to teach lifesaving skills. Tony worked alongside two paramedics from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to teach first aids skills to six groups of students.

Yorkshire Ambulance Service started Restart a Heart Day in 2014, with the aim of improving outcomes from cardiac arrest in the county by teaching people cardiopulmonary resuscitation. This year's event took place on October 14 and smashed the milestone of more than 200,000 young people being taught CPR since the Restart a Heart campaign was launched in 2014. During this time, bystander CPR rates in Yorkshire have increased from 39.9% (2014) to 74.9%* (2021 – *provisional data due to be confirmed later this month).

These students are potential future lifesavers and we are pleased to have received feedback that the children really enjoyed the experience. A representative from Sirius Academy West, Hull, commented "Year 7 [were] hard at it learning lifesaving skills for Restart a Heart Day. Thank you to Yorkshire Ambulance and Anthony Fill from HFR Solutions CIC for leading the day".
