Restart a Heart

latest news

Restart A Heart Day is an international event held each year on 16 October to raise community awareness of compression-only (hands-only) CPR. Only one in ten people affected by sudden cardiac arrest survive. However, bystander Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and early defibrillation can increase survival rates.

Do you know what to do if someone has a cardiac arrest?

Call. Push. Shock.

Call: 000 for an ambulance

Push: Start CPR, hands only compression can help save a life

Shock: using an AED is easier thank you think

Join SA Ambulance Service at Rundle Mall on Sunday, 16 October for an event where you can learn about hands-only CPR and how to use an AED.

For more information and other ways to get involved, head to or follow SA Ambulance on social media.

You can register your public AED with SAAS so we can help direct others to it in an emergency.
