The Parish Council arranged free training on the use of the AED now installed on the Village Hall wall.
We know that many villagers have attended such training at work but now we have a further dozen with potentially life saving knowledge. All agreed that they had learnt a lot from their session.
Some villagers did ask how AED awareness training could take two hours.
Well, the trainer did covered a lot of ground: recognising a heart attack as opposed to cardiac arrest; applying CPR; the use of the AED; and, placing the patient in the recovery position. With questions and discussion our session took just over two hours – time well spent.
Dummies were available to practice CPR – if you need a reminder see Vinnie Jones on the BHF page.
