AN EFFORT is on to save lives in cases of emergency.

The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Project (SCAP) is hoping to have at least one person in each household trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) by 2020, and access to defibrillators in high- trafficked areas such as malls, gyms and movie theatres.

The Sandy Crest and Coverley Medical Centres, Regal Development Solutions and Caribbean Health Solutions have partnered in the life-saving training project revealed yesterday at Sandy Crest.

Dr David Byer, co-manager of the project, said the aim was to have one person in every household able to response in cases of emergencies. (AC)
