Life-saving courses available this November

The 16th October marked Restart a Heart Day, a European-wide day aimed at teaching members of the public how to perform life-saving CPR skills.

To highlight this, St Helens Council’s LOCAL Leaders Programme is offering a series of FREE  workshops throughout November exclusively for volunteers and community group contacts which will include emergency first aid within the workplace, and first aid awareness training.

By taking part in the Emergency First Aid at Work course, not only will you
gain essential life changing skills, you will also become qualified as a
result of undertaking a practical assessment – while the First Aid
Awareness course teaches you a basic understanding of first aid, including what action to take in an emergency, CPR, and treating an unconscious person.
