Members of the Roseland Surgeries Patients Group and the Cornwall Fire & Rescue Service are offering free Basic First Aid training to people in the Parishes of the Roseland who have expressed interest in the Roseland defibrillator project. The course lasts around 3 hours maximum and includes techniques to administer CPR and deal with Bleeding and Choking.
The first course for Gerrans Parish (includes Portscatho!) residents is on the 19th June at the Memorial Hall at 7:00 pm. Places are strictly limited to 16 as there is practical work on the Resuscitation Dummies included. You must book a place by phoning Simone on 01872 580282 after 6:00 pm. Whilst there is no charge it is expected that people undertaking the course will then make themselves available to help others in need and be confident to use the defibrillator units that are being purchased with Parish funds and will be located in Gerrans and Portscatho.
If there is significant demand a second course will be offered on the 26th June – same place, same time.
Courses will be run for other Parishes in the future.
