Kids Alive is a major supporter April Pools Day, which promotes the importance of CPR training for parents and pool owners.
Did you know a child is four times more likely to survive a drowning if CPR is started immediately? This is why over 90% of Australians believe CPR should be compulsory for all parents and pools owners.

Could you perform CPR in an Emergency?
A Poolwerx survey of Australian parents shows while one in 20 have given or know someone who has given CPR to save a life, almost 65 per cent of parents of young children do not have a CPR qualification.
The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically impacted the number of swimming lessons young children have participated in over the past year, causing their confidence in and around the water to drop. With 248 Australian lives tragically lost in 2020 due to drowning, it is imperative for parents, caregivers and pool owners to know CPR. It can be the difference between life and death.
Plus, to help new CPR students cement their learning, Poolwerx also crafted a CPR playlist on Spotify, for Australians to pick their favourite 110 beats per minute song – the recommended rate to perform chest compressions.
The Red Cross online CPR course only takes a few hours and you can register from 1-15 April 2021 at https://www.poolwerx.com.au/about-us/april-pools-day/.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn the lifesaving skill of CPR and help us prevent child drownings. Remember STEP 5 at KIDS ALIVE is LEARN HOW TO RESUCITATE!
 Poolwerx research surveyed more than 650 Australian parents (November 2019)
