First Aid Course

On Thursday, 12th February, British Red Cross First Aid training took place at DRAC. With 22 clients from countries including Syria, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Sudan, Iran, Libya and Eritrea, we learned how to help in cases of stroke, heart attack, meningitis, diabetes and burns. The trainer advised us to put cold water onto a burn for 10 minutes. The trainer also explained that it was important to keep the burn cool and she reinforced her advice that the 10 minute guideline could save a life.
Forthcoming workshops include:

26.03.2015 Book Group
11.04.2015 Trip to Wirksworth for the more socially isolated clients.
16.04.2015 Safeguarding of Vulnerable Children and Adults
