Free Heartstart course will help Burnley residents to save lives

Release date: 
Friday, 12 January, 2018

It’s a new year, so why not make your New Year’s resolution to help save someone’s life?

Sounds ambitious, but it’s not as daunting as it first appears.

Residents can benefit from free first aid training sessions being offered by Burnley Council.

The council has, once again, teamed up with North West Ambulance Service First Respondersto organise a series of Heartstart courses, giving members of the public the skills and know-how to help save someone’s life in an emergency.

People on the course will learn about dealing with an unconscious person, signs and symptoms of a heart attack, recognising a cardiac arrest and performing CPR, using a defibrillator, dealing with choking and serious bleeding.

The first course will be held on Wednesday 31st January at Prairie Sports Village, Windermere Avenue, Burnley, between 6pm and 8pm.

To book a place on one of the courses, please go to www.burnleycouncil.eventbrite.com.

Mike Waite, from the council’s community engagement team, said: “These first aid training sessions are a great way of refreshing existing skills, but are also suited for people who have never attended a first aid training course, they are free and really worthwhile.”

BurnleyCouncil has installed defibrillators in its main buildings, as well as in the town centre pedestrianised area outside McDonald’s and Marks & Spencer.
