This evening, our weekly training session encompassed our Annual CPR and Basic Life Support Test / assessment including an overview of the use and operation of the five AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) of two types that we have within the team, ordinarily kept on team vehicles.
Very experienced team member Mark Scott undertook the training aspects of this evening, in his role as an accredited NWAS BLS / AED Trainer by giving an excellent powerpoint presentation on all we needed to know about the ‘Chain of Survival.’
Mark,with thanks to NWAS, also brought along some ‘Training Only AEDs,’ for team members to utilise in the practical training that took place after Marks informative and interesting presentation.
28x Bolton MRT Call Out list members attended this evenings training, which will be repeated for those members who could not attend tonight, on Wednesday evening 6th November 2013.
At this 2nd session, we’ll also be inviting our Support Group members to attend, and take a full part in this vital training.
