Cardiac First Response

PHECC Cardiac First Response – Community (CFR-C)

Over 10,000 people die each year from cardiovascular disease in Ireland. Approximately half of those deaths are caused by sudden cardiac arrest.

The vast majority of cardiac arrests happen outside of hospital and usually in close proximity to family member or friend.

If you learn how to perform CPR, you may be able to save a life.

This comprehensive half-day course was developed by the Pre Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) as a national standard to ensure that those who suffer cardiac arrest in the community are given the best possible chance of survival. The course is suited to those who may be required to respond to a sudden cardiac arrest, heart attack, choking, stroke or unconsciousness in the workplace, at a sports facility, in the home or in the community.
