Why we are paving the way to something great
Less than 1 in 10 people will survive an out-of-hospital heart attack. Roughly 80% of Canadians will have a heart attack either at home or at work, and less than 8% will survive (2018 stats). This number isn’t high enough for Life Start. That's why we are passionate about better quality training, and providing participants with proper equipment, along with interactive training. You will get a little messy with our classes, but I promise it’s worth the learning experience!
More AEDs = More Lives Saved
The research is clear: AEDs paired with CPR within three minutes of cardiac arrest are key to survival. This power duo can increase someone’s chances of survival by 80%. To put it bluntly, the odds of survival without one, is super low and that's something we cannot accept.
The more public places that are equipped with AEDs, the easier and quicker it is to get your hands on one when the thinkable happens. Although more and more Canadian communities, organizations and businesses are getting on board, we still have a lot of work to do. We need to bring the importance of AED use to centerstage, and we are happy to take that stage with quality training and public awareness.
