Ali Richardson, Community Engagement Manager for Yorkshire Ambulance Service, is offering FREE 2.5 hours First Aid Awareness courses to communities across the Yorkshire Ambulance Service area of North, South, West and East Yorkshire.
Ali would like to offer the members of your community, parish, congregation, masjid, friends, family, colleagues or community contacts and/or their families, or their friends, the opportunity to have a FREE 2.5 hours First Aid Awareness course, for those who are 16 years of age or older.
The course covers
- How to recognise a Suspected Heart Attack
- How, when and why to perform Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
- Demonstration with AED Training Machine
- How to perform Hands-Only Chest Compressions (CPR)
- How, when and why to place an Unconscious Breathing person into the Recovery Position
- How to recognise and deal with a Choking Situation
- How to deal with a Suspected Stroke (FAST)
- How to deal with Life-Threatening or Serious Bleeding
- (Adult – Child – Baby protocols will be shown)
Numbers could range from 12 to 20 in any group.
Perhaps you could arrange for the use of a room in your community, or other premises, for the occasion, and also arrange for free on-site car parking for a vehicle.
Ali can deliver the training on any day of the week or weekend, at a time to suit the convenience of your community. More than one event can be arranged if demand is sufficient.
This FREE training is open to anyone of 16-years or above, who either lives or works in Yorkshire.
YAS can provide all the training aids, and most importantly –
- a YAS Certificate of Attendance (not a qualification) which would look rather nice in anyone’s CV or portfolio,
- and a FREE disposable YAS Emergency CPR Resuscitation Face-shield.
This may be a useful tool for members of your community who wish to add a vocational skill to their CV.
Whilst the training is delivered FREE OF CHARGE at the point of delivery, the finance for this training is provided by Yorkshire Ambulance Service Charitable Fund, who receive donations and legacies from the public and community organisations to sustain this innovative training and other lifesaving initiatives.
Ali always has a YAS Charitable Fund collecting box with her to collect any donations which grateful members of the public feel able to give.
There are also some FREE YAS online learning resources here
E-mail Ali to arrange suitable times and dates if you would like to take the offer up firstname.lastname@example.org
