National Life Saving Day 2021 Webinar

This event is open to invited CPR+AED training centres only.

This annual event organised by SHF aims to keep CPR-AED instructors in Singapore updated on industry guidelines and skills development. The focus of this year’s event is on CPR+AED for female casualties, as studies show that women are less likely than men to receive timely CPR in public due to bystanders’ reluctance to touch the chest of women they do not know.
