Dronfield re-start a heart day- Oct 18

One of our Police Community Support Officers has been helping youngsters in Dronfield about the importance of CPR.

It’s as officers on many of our Safer Neighbourhood policing teams took part in the worldwide Restart a Heart Day, which aims to teach more people how to carry out life-saving first aid.

PCSO Phil Levers of the Dronfield Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team teamed up with Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service- Dronfield Community First Responders to pass on their knowledge to pupils at Dronfield Junior School.

He said: “I was very proud to be able to support Restart a Heart Day in Dronfield alongside some of our emergency service volunteers and partners. It is so important for people to learn CPR, a vital skill which could save someone’s life.”

Restart a Heart Day is an annual campaign to raise awareness of the importance of CPR, which saw more than 200,000 people trained in life saving CPR across the UK.

It is the fifth annual event, which took place on Tuesday, October 16.
