Report on our Training evening of Wednesday 1st October 2014. BLS, CPR, AED and D(octo)r ABC

Our weekly Wednesday evening session on 1st October 2014, saw team members assembling at our Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ for an earlier than usual 19.00hrs start, for all attending to take their Annual CPR and BLS test, including the use of our team AED’s.

Our in – house trainers, the very experienced Mark Scott (an NWAS certified AED trainer) Nigel Booth (again NWAS trained BLS / CPR) and Alistair Greenough (A lifetime in Accident and Emergency Nursing) had planned out an evening of awareness and appropriate training to get all members attending through this our annual test.

Mark Scott started with an excellent powerpoint presentation, and then it was on to the tests, for the members present.

We are very pleased to report that all thirty members attending to take their test passed with flying colours, with the usual reminisces by our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE who first joined the team in 1974 and our Life Vice President Alan James, a founder team member in 1968, about the ‘sylvester method’ taught in the team way back in the early days !

For those team members who could not attend tonight, a further repeat session will be held on Wednesday 22nd October 2014.
