St John Ambulance in Surrey is holding its annual Breath of Life first aid training day for the public on 2 April, 10am – 3pm.
Our goal? To show over 1,500 more people how to save a life in an emergency. These are simple skills everyone should know: how you can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.
Faced with an emergency, would you know what to do?
This year, the free training sessions will be held at 15 venues across Surrey one more than last year. The 30 minute drop-in sessions will take place in Ash Vale, Caterham, Cobham, Camberley, Cranleigh, Dorking, Epsom, Farnham, Haslemere, Horley, Guildford, Leatherhead, Reigate, Woking and Walton-upon-Thames.
To check the venue details, phone 01483 450000, option 3.
St John Ambulance believes that no-one should suffer from the lack of life-saving first aid knowledge and over the last few years, our Surrey volunteers have trained thousands of members of the public, free, in how to assess a casualty; put them in the recovery position; clear their airway and administer chest compressions and the breath of life.
There is no need to book. Bring the whole family and just turn up on the day children, grandparents anyone can learn how to save a life in an emergency. The sessions last just half an hour. They are free – but what price can we put on a life?
