Education – Heartstart

In partnership with WMAS, our volunteers provide “Heartstart” courses in our local community. Using a mixture of videos and practical work, you learn vital lifesaving skills which could help keep someone alive until professional help arrives.

Courses are FREE and take about 2 hours.

The course includes: 
• How to call for help 
• How to help someone who is unconscious
• How to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
• How to recognise the signs of a heart attack
• How to deal with choking
• How to deal with serious breathing.

In association with ambulance services nationally and the BHF, our team also take part in the annual “Restart a Heart” day campaign by training large numbers of pupils in local schools to use CPR.

Education – Community Talks

We also welcome the opportunity to talk to community groups about the work of Community First Responders and how they can help us to help them. 
Our talks also include demonstrations of how easy it is to use an AED.
