The Cardiac Action Group (CAG) aims to raise awareness of heart disease, promote cardiac patient care, facilitate the development of new cardiac services, and support existing services across Guernsey. 

CAG has been a Guernsey Registered Charity since 1996, and has been involved in many fundraising and awareness raising events during this time, with our flagship event being the annual 'Healthy Hearts Day', running successfully for 11 years and counting. In recent years, CAG has concentrated on:

helping local businesses, communities and individuals to install life-saving equipment known as defibrillators around the Bailiwick. Usually refered to as Automated External* Defibrillators (or AEDs), sometimes these are made available to the general public and in that instance are referred to as Public Access Defibrillators (or PADs) and are usually found outside in a public space.*Note: the 'external' refers to the placement on the body when in use, not the location.

getting as many defibrillators registered on their database as possible. This database is shared with The St John Emergency Ambulance Service to ensure that in an emergency, a caller can be directed to the closest defibrillator. Early response is vital to the statistics of surviving a cardiac arrest. Read more here

spreading the word about a free downloadable App that advises of the location of all registered defibrillators across the Bailiwick, as well as directions to the closest one in an emergency. Please note: From 1st April 2016, the App has been updated so the original version should be replaced. Read more here



Use Call, Push, Rescue (C.P.R) if someone's had a cardiac arrest, they'll be unconscious, not breathing or not breathing normally. The person will die within minutes without immediate help. Act quickly and Call Push Rescue.

C - call 999 immediately
P - Push hard and fast on the centre of the chest 30 times
R - give two rescue breaths. Keep going until the emergency medical services arrive. If you'd rather not give rescue breaths then call 999 and deliver hands-only CPR. That's better than doing nothing.
