CardiacSmart Awards Celebrate Community Life Savers

THE North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) NHS Trust held its bi annual CardiacSmart Award ceremony at Blackburn Rover's stadium, Ewood Park to recognise individuals and organisations who have dedicated time to raising awareness of heart health, basic life support and defibrillators in their local communities.

CardiacSmart is part of the Chain of Survival Partnership and community resuscitation team which is growing the network of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). These are available in the community for use on people who suffer cardiac arrest outside hospitals in the North West.

The Chain of Survival aims to complement NWAS's emergency resources to reduce death from cardiac arrest in the community. The initiative works to increase the number of people in the North West who can provide basic emergency life support and use an automated external defibrillator, informing people how and when to access defibrillators. It is engaging with local communities to work together to establish defibrillators and community responders.

Bob Williams, Chief Executive of NWAS, said:- "The CardiacSmart Award encourages people to take action and save the lives of people who suffer from a cardiac arrest in the community. I am delighted to publically recognise all those who are working for safe and healthy communities – where we all want to live and work."
