When someone goes into cardiac arrest, prompt action by anyone nearby could offer their only chance of survival. Would you know what to do to help save a life?

Come along to a FREE life-support awareness session being delivered this week by Sheppey firefighters at Sheppey Healthy Living Centre in Royal Road, Sheerness to find out how you could make a difference.

The fire crew will be demonstrating hands-only CPR and how to use a public access defibrillator (PAD), and will inviting people to give it a try at the centre all this week.

These familiarisation sessions are taking place from today, Monday 19 November 7pm-9pm, Tuesday to Thursday 10am to 12pm and Friday 2pm-4pm.

Booking is not required - just drop in and take away some valuable skills which really could save a life.

PADs which are available for community use in an emergency at all Kent Fire and Rescue Service's fire stations in Kent and Medway.

A list of all the events taking place can be found on our website and on KFRS' Facebook page @kentfirerescue.
