You have the power to save a life - 4 Mar 2023 CPR + AED Training (Boon Lay)

According to the Singapore Heart Foundation, immediate application of Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) can increase a victim’s survival rates by as high as 50%. In fact, taking a course will enable one with the confidence to spring into action to perform CPR or use an AED during an emergency.

To equip caregivers the skills and knowledge to perform CPR and use an AED, CAREkakis (who are trained grassroot volunteers by CaringSG), organised a CPR + AED training session for Boon Lay caregivers on 4 March 2023.  The training session was conducted at Boon Lay Community Centre from 2pm to 6pm with a total of 8 caregivers and 1 special needs dependent participating.

During the 4-hour training session, participants were taught the correct techniques of performing CPR safely as well as the steps on how to use an AED properly in conjunction with CPR. Participants were also certified once they had successfully fulfilled the passing criteria.

This course was supported by 2 CaringSG staff and volunteers and 1 CAREkaki and also by the Enabling Lives Grant Initiative funded by Tote Board and managed by SG Enable, Temasek Foundation and Boon Lay CCC.
