Emergency first aid training course
Monday 27 November 2017, 9:30-11:30am
Kensington Town Hall, committee room 1
Would you know what to do if someone had a cardiac arrest, stopped breathing, had a major bleeding or was choking?
Together with the London Ambulance Service, we will be holding a first aid training course in Kensington Town Hall on Monday 27 November, starting at 9.30 am.
The course, which lasts for two hours, teaches basic life-support skills so that you can manage until the ambulance staff arrive. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the training session.
You will learn:
• Possible causes of cardiac and respiratory arrest
• What happens to the body during cardiac arrest
• How to recognise and manage a heart attack
• How to perform cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
• Putting someone into the recovery position
• Treating major bleeding and adult choking
• Defibrillator familiarisation
The number of places on this course is limited to 15, in order to give everyone a chance to practice on a dummy, so book as quickly as possible.
If we have a good response, we plan to arrange another session next spring.
