Defibrillator Training

Date: September 10, 2022
Time: 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Location: Standish Village Hall
Would you know what to do if someone you know suffered a cardiac arrest?

In the event of a life-threatening cardiac arrhythmia, every second counts. The faster an Automated External Defibrillator can be successfully applied and used, the higher the chance of survival from cardiac arrest. Even shaving off the shortest amounts of time can mean the difference between life and death.

Standish Village Hall has a detachable A.E.D (Automated External Defibrillator) available for use by anyone in the event of a cardiac arrest. It is located on the wall to the left of the front door, facing the car park.

Although the device gives instructions for use so it can be used without training, a recent incident showed that unfamiliarity with its working can waste valuable seconds. Accordingly a training session has been arranged for SATURDAY 10th SEPTEMBER at the Village Hall between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., conducted by a trainer from the Hall’s tenant ERFA – a First Aid Training company. This has been sponsored by the Village Hall Committee and is free of charge.

The course will cover:

  • Basic life support (CPR) including practice on mannequins
  • recovery position
  • Safety aspects of defibrillation
  • Breathing management
  • Incident assessment
  • Legal aspects of defibrillation
  • Life threatening cardiac rhythms
  • Practical training with the defibrillator

Attending this course could help you save a life.
