Get involved! Share your lifesaver story with us.


At Save a Life for Scotland we know how crucial bystander intervention is in increasing out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival rates. We believe everyone in Scotland can be part of the Chain of Survival and help save a life. We want to highlight the wonderful diversity in Scotland and feature groups and communities who are not often represented in training materials that teach you how to help someone in cardiac arrest. Let’s challenge perceptions around what it means to be a lifesaver!

Help us by sharing your story and getting involved in our #ALifesaverLooksLike campaign.



Fill in the template sharing why you’re a lifesaver. If you don’t have a printer, write down your lifesaver story on a piece of paper or whiteboard.

Get creative!

The possibilities are endless. Here are some examples to give you some inspiration:

  • I’m CPR Ready
  • I know the steps to save a life (calling 999, starting CPR, using a defibrillator)
  • I can recognise the signs of a cardiac arrest
  • I’m not afraid to use a defibrillator
  • I talk to my friends and family about how to help someone in cardiac arrest


Post a photograph of yourself holding your sign sharing your story. Remember to use #ALifesaverLooksLike and tag us our relevant socials!
