On a dark February evening (07.02.19) 18 learners from Aldermaston village and beyond joined CCB and Heartstart Thatcham for an interesting and potentially life saving evening.
Thanks to support from West Berkshire Adult Community Learning those present were taken through a variety of emergency procedures including unconscious, cardiac arrest, suspected heart attack, choking, serious bleeding and hands on practice on how to use a defibrillator.
Learners comments included:
I just wanted to say thank you again for organising the defibrillator training last evening and supporting us all. Also to the guys from HeartStart for such an excellent course. It really was a great evening.
Very many thanks for an enjoyable and informative evening. Hopefully I will never have to use the knowledge but should I be called upon at least it has given me the confidence to try.
The next First Aid & Defibrillator training, this time in partnership with Heartstart Swallowfield and funded by Wokingham Adult Community Learning is taking place on 21st March, 7pm at Cornerstone, Wokingham.
