Would you know what to do in a life-threatening emergency? Learning Emergency Life Support (ELS) skills can help you keep someone alive until professional help arrives.

We provide Heartstart Training at the Community Centre  in partnership with the British Heart Foundation to teach you what to do in a life-threatening emergency – simple skills that save lives.

  • Every year around 124,000 people in the UK suffer a heart attack
  • Many of these people go into cardiac arrest and die before reaching hospital
  • Without resuscitation, cardiac arrest is always fatal
  • But, performing CPR could double that person’s chance of survival

CPR is part of ELS training it only takes two hours to learn how to keep someone alive until professional help arrives.

Your training will include skills such as:

  • Assessing an unconscious patient
  • Performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • Dealing with choking
  • Serious bleeding
  • Helping someone that may be having a heart attack

To learn the simple skills that save lives, contact us on 01623 624208 to book onto one of our sessions.

Sessions are free of charge but we welcome voluntary donations which will help with the upkeep of the equipment and enable us to run future courses.  Any donation, however small, is gratefully received, this can be coins placed in our donation tin or items which we can use for raffle prizes or sell in our charity shop.
