Free community CPR training in Duleek

Front Page


Would you know what to do if someone collapsed in front of you?

By knowing how to carry out hands-only CPR you can triple the chance of survival for someone who collapses in front of you. It doesn’t bear thinking about what would happen if you don’t know.

That’s why the Duleek First Response Group are running a free community CPR training event in Duleek Church Hall on Sunday week, 26th May 2019

This very important community training event is free and is open to everyone in the community because CPR Saves Lives.

Seventy per cent of cardiac arrests occur in the home so the life you save could be a loved one or friend, could you imagine if you had to look on as they died just because you didn’t know how to do CPR on them? That’s why everyone should learn hands-on CPR.

This mass training event will be completely free and will happen in one hour sessions across the day. Places are expected to fill up quickly, so booking your session on to secure your place is a must. Group bookings are very welcome and community groups are encouraged to sign up together – just CLICK HERE.

Duleek CFR’s key goal with this training day is to help save lives from cardiac arrest through CPR training. The more people who know CPR the more lives we can save.

Everyone can be vital link in the chain in our community, workplaces, and homes. If a loved one or someone you know goes into cardiac arrest, you are their main chance of survival. One hour of your time on Sunday, 26th May, could save someone’s life.

Every day in Ireland 13 people die from a cardiac arrest, unfortunately, just 6.5% of people in Ireland who have a cardiac arrest in a non-hospital setting survive. CPR is an easy skill to learn and once you know how to do it, you could save someone’s life.

CPR is a vital step in the chain of survival after a cardiac arrest and if you have been taught CPR, you are 10 times more likely to respond appropriately in an emergency.
