Hey Mum, This Is How You Do It – Herald Sun
In a bid to bridge the gap and strengthen community resilience, St John Ambulance (VIC) has partnered with Chadstone and will be providing free CPR lessons to the public over a ten day period, commencing Monday 12th March 2018.

“There are so many precautions you take as a parent and First Aid and CPR training is one that every parent should make,” she said.
