Emergency Medical Training Sessions
After a successful series of training sessions at which a small but keen band of local residents learned valuable life saving skills on dealing with medical emergencies including heart attacks, major bleeds, choking and fractures as well as the use of our defibrillator and how to give CPR, there will now be a break until the Spring. However much useful information can still be found on this webite. When training resumes next year more residents are strongly encouraged to attend so that the knowledge on what to do in an emergency can be spread widely throughout our local community for the benefit of us all. Responding immediately to a medical emergency with simple first aid before the ambulance or paramedic arrives, has been shown to increase the casualty’s chances of recovery significantly. Hence sharing first aid tips and arranging emergency medical training sessions to help people feel more able and confident to respond when the unfortunate happens is seen as an important community function.
