We try to make sure we always have a first aider on duty when Penistone Leisure Centre is open, and so run regular ‘Emergency First Aid at Work’ courses to train new volunteers. These are also available to anyone else in the area at a cost of £40.
As we have a defibrillator on site which is publicly available, and there are others in Penistone Town Centre and around the area, the course includes defibrillator training. This will show you how to restart someone’s heart in an emergency. ‘Emergency First Aid at Work’ is a recognised qualification which leads to a certificate and can be used for work, volunteering or so you could help friends and family in an emergency.
The course has been booked for Sunday 9th July from 9:30am-4pm. As before, this will be available free for Penistone Leisure Centre volunteers and will cost £40 for any other local people who wish to attend. It will include free lunch and drinks for everyone. We welcome new volunteers, who could then attend the first aid course for free!
Covered in the day is resuscitation (including the defibrillator), recovery position, choking, bleeding, burns and shock.
