Charity football team North Wales Dragons have added the Chain of Survival logo to their new football kits.
The Chain of Survival is a logo that outlines the four steps to help save a life, from recognising a cardiac arrest to the person receiving post-resuscitation care. The North Wales Dragons will now sport the logo on four shirts over the next two years, helping to educate both players and supporters about the importance of the Chain of Survival.
It’s a subject that couldn’t be closer to co-founder Chris Roberts’ heart.
“In 2015 I suffered a heart attack. I was in intensive care for five days, following which I decided I would do more research on heart awareness,” he said.
“I then went on to receive CPR training as I knew how important it is to have the knowledge to resuscitate, so that if one day the opportunity presents itself, I am able to help as much as possible.”
Nick Aitken, a community CPR training provider and sponsor of North Wales Dragons, emphasized why the Chain of Survival is so important.
“The chain of survival simplifies what we’re doing”, he said. “It’s four easy steps to remember."
“For the next two years, people will ask: ‘what is that? What does it mean?’- it opens up the conversation.”
