29/03/2023 CPR and Defib Training
Following the recent medical incident at Werrington Sports Centre and comments made to me about CPR and Defib knowledge, I'm grateful that Tim and Carol have very kindly organised the following training at Werrington Sports Centre for any members who might be interested.
 
The East Anglian Air Ambulance Service will provide Defibrillator and CPR awareness training to members and whilst the training will not provide a First Aid qualification it will provide awareness of how to use a defibrillator and how to carry out CPR until professional help arrives. Even if you were not able to use a defibrillator or carry out CPR, it is hoped that after these sessions you could support someone else to do so.
 
There will be two alternative dates, with each session lasting 90 minutes:
 
Sunday 16th April 14.30 -16.00 and Saturday 22nd April 14.30 - 16.00
 
Each session can accommodate 16 members and if you wish to register please email Tim directly on tim30dstj@aol.com with your name and which session.
 
I anticipate (and hope) that each session will be fully booked and therefore if you subsequently find you can't attend please let Tim know so that he can promote names from any waiting list.
 
The training is being provided free of charge by the East Anglian Air Ambulance Service and Vivacity are also kindly providing the rooms free of charge to us, therefore there is no cost to attendees.
 
Given the limited number of places though this is available to senior club members only.
 
If anyone has any questions please contact Tim or me.
 
Best wishes
 
Rod
