This Saturday 29th September is World Heart Day. It’s all about looking after your heart!
This is a global campaign during which individuals, families, communities and governments around the world participate in activities to take charge of their heart health and that of others.
Does your community have anything planned to raise awareness of heart health?
Do you have any ideas of how you can raise awareness of heart health in your community and circle of friends and family?
Why not promise to cook and eat more healthily, to do more exercise and encourage your children to be more active, to say no to smoking or help your loved ones to stop.
Another way is to check if your local community has access to a life saving defibrillator and if not ask why not.
Immediate access to a defibrillator is the only way to survive a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
At Defib For Life, our mission is to get defibrillators installed in every sporting club, sporting complex, health club, community facility, school, corporate office, government building, and industrial facility.
With over 33,000 people experiencing an out-of-hospital Sudden Cardiac Arrest every year in Australia, of all ages and fitness levels, we believe defibrillators are essential to Australia’s heart health!
