First response

Aed logo c commons.wikimedia.orgVolunteer and save a life, literally. Community First Responders (CFRs) provide emergency care for people who have suffered cardiac arrest until a paramedic arrives on scene. CFRs are critical, especially in  conjested cities or rural areas when it's difficult for paramedics to get to a patient quickly, especially when every minute counts.

As a CFR for St John Ambulance you'll get full training, including learning how to use a defibrillator (a portable device with pads which shocks the heart into action). Having myself worked with defibrillators in the past I know how simple they are to use, they even give you step-by-step instructions, talking you through what to do.

So, switch off Casualty and go and do some real life saving in your local community.
