Community First Responders ready to help

Wed, 28 Dec 2011

12 more people are now ready to help those who fall ill and are waiting for ambulances in rural parts of the Island.

The latest group to complete St John Ambulance's Community First Responders programme are now ready to provide first aid.

The course taught the new recruits techniques such as CPR and defibrillation.

There's been a lot of interest in the course, and enough people came forward for this course to fill the next.

There are now 46 community first responders on the Island, who can provide treatment whilst patients await paramedics.
