The British Heart Foundation’s Hard & Fast campaign to highlight compression-only life saving skills is back and supported by the ambulance service.

The BHF is encouraging compression-only cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in the event of cardiac arrest; the campaign should benefit those who do not have any training but want to help someone in need.

The high-profile national awareness campaign was first run at the beginning of 2012 and the hard-man footballer-turned-actor Vinnie Jones starred in a video that has so far received nearly 400,000 hits.  The ambulance service will promote the charity's messages via the web and through Heart Start courses in the region.
