St John Ambulance is continuing its drive to get local people first aid trained by holding courses across Warwickshire this summer.

The community first aid training focuses on a range of emergency situations, involving adults, infants and children.

Courses will be held across the region, and places are still available on one due to be held in Rugby on Saturday, July 4.

This takes place from 9am-4pm and will be about essential and basic first aid.

It will cover five main ways to save a life, including helping an unconscious casualty (recovery position), choking, chest pain, severe bleeding and restarting someone’s heart, along with other first aid techniques such as sprains and strains.

Emma Elgerton, community training co-ordinator for St John Ambulance in the West Midlands, said: “Our first aid courses could mean the difference between life and death.

“With first aid skills you can enjoy a safer summer, knowing that should an emergency situation happen, you have the knowledge and the confidence to deal with it.”

The first aid courses are suitable for anyone aged 12 and upwards.

Booking is essential.
