Saving Lives

First Aid for All
Providing First Aid for All

Inspired by the educational first aid programs in Seattle in the United States, Nova First Aid provides free first aid workshops to families across Halifax. Over 50 families have participated in these sessions. Being parents ourselves, we wanted to help change our community for the better. Statistics like the cardiac arrests in Seattle helped inspire Nova First Aid to reach out and teach as many people in our community. Some of our supporters are the Credit Union Atlantic CUA and The Halifax Public Libraries.

  • Cardiac Arrest (Heart Stops)

    85% of heart arrests happen outside of the hospital

  • Canadian Survival

    Only 5% of Canadians survive a cardiac arrest outside the hospital

  • Seattle Survival

    Seattle in Washington has a survival rate of 65%
