World Restart a Heart (WRAH) Day on October 16, 2022.
Launched by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR), this global campaign aims to increase public awareness on Cardiac Arrest and the importance of learning CPR and how to use an AED. It originated as European Restart a Heart Day, launched in 2013 by the European Resuscitation Council (an ILCOR member).
While the campaign’s name has changed, the goal remains the same: to encourage more people to learn CPR and to inspire them to take action if they witness a cardiac arrest, which will ultimately save more lives.
In Canada, our goal is to highlight the signs of cardiac arrest, the need for immediate intervention, basic CPR and AED skills, and to address bystanders’ fears to encourage them to take action to save a life.
We are leveraging our partnerships to get the word out about World Restart a Heart.
