On average, SARS responders are mobilised to at least one serious road traffic collision or patient in cardiac arrest every week.
SARS hold regular CPR awareness sessions in schools and with other groups to help highlight the importance of bystander CPR in reducing fatal cardiac arrests.
If you are interested in SARS volunteers holding a CPR awareness session or another in-house presentation for your group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not charge for these sessions but they are dependent on our volunteer’s availability.
This could have happened to anyone. I feel I have been very lucky. They gave me CPR, if it was not for them nothing else would have mattered.
Gary Wright was 49 when he suffered a cardiac arrest. He was given bystander CPR by two off-duty nurses before the arrival of a SARS team.
Immediate bystander CPR increases the chance of survival by 60%
SARS receives no central government funding. We rely on voluntary donations to fund equipment and training for our clinical volunteers. Please help us offer the best possible service to the people of Suffolk and its surrounding areas.
