  • CPR Training in Montgomery Street Park

Over fifty people were trained in life saving CPR skills by St John Scotland volunteers in Montgomery Street Park last weekend.

The CPR training session, held as part of the Save a Life for Scotland initiative, was hosted by volunteers from St John Scotland and the 105th Regiment Royal Artillery unit, who trained people of all ages completely free of charge.

The Save a Life for Scotland initiative aims to train 500,000 people in Scotland by-stander CPR skills by 2020. Every year, 3,500 people in Scotland will suffer a cardiac arrest, but only around 1 in 20 will survive.

Save a Life for Scotland came about following a new strategy for out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), which aims to double survival rates across the country within five years. Reaching this level of performance would mean around 300 more lives being saved every year compared to recent years. It is hoped that this improvement programme could save up to 1,000 additional lives by 2020.

St John Scotland hosts pop-up CPR sessions across the country, free of charge, and open to people of all ages. To find out where our next CPR training session is, visit our What’s On page.
