Save a Life for Scotland

Every year over 3,500 people around Scotland are treated by the Ambulance Service after having a cardiac arrest. Unfortunately only around 1 in 12 people will survive.

Starting CPR saves lives.

Doing CPR can at least double the chances of survival. So let’s be ready. We’re asking you to say ‘I’ll do it’ and be one of 500,000 people in Scotland getting CPR ready.
