St John's First Aid Training

On Wednesday 20th July 13 people from the Grange and Oaklands Park communities attended an in-house First Aid Training demonstration with Ellen from St John's Ambulance.

The two hour demonstration came about after several people had expressed an interest in learning about First Aid via the Forum and Activity Questionnaire. A wide range of topics were covered, including some which had been raised by the people attending:

  • Primary survey after the accident
  • Unconciousness
  • Recovery Position / D.R.A.B.C.
  • Chest Pain - Heart Attack / Cardiac Arrest / Angina
  • Asthma Attacks
  • Epilepsy

Everyone really enjoyed the morning and came away feeling like they had learnt a lot. We hope to run another course similar to this next year.
