The local community alert committee are in the process of organising a training course that will cover Defibrillation (AED) plus Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). This course is well suited to those who would like to learn the basics in AED and CPR in a one-day program (normally between 7pm to 10pm) and you will receive a recognised certificate that is valid for two years, issued upon successful completion.
No matter who and where you are, people of all ages can suffer from sudden cardiac arrest. Regardless of the cause, from choking to heart attack, the situation is life threatening and requires swift, effective response. Knowing what to do can save a life and this course can give you the skills you need. The fee is €60 and depending on numbers this may reduce.
They hope to hold it over the next couple of weeks on a date that is suitable to most people so if anybody is interested please get in touch with myself, Michael Carroll, or contact Gerry Coyle directly. I would strongly advise that people attend this course because you never know when your actions will be required in an emergency and your action may determine whether a serious injury or an ill person survives.
DON’T DELAY AND GET IN TOUCH…YOUR ACTIONS COULD SAVE A LIFE.
