Following on from the installation of our new defibrillator down at the shops (code to open: C159X), we’re organising a Cardiac First Response-Community course.
It’s a once-off 4 hour course run by St. John Ambulance at their premises on Upper Leeson Street. The course teaches CPR, the use of AEDs, and how to recognise and treat heart attacks, stroke and choking. The ratio is 1:6 instructors to learners. Successful participants will be issued with a Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) certificate which is valid for 2 years.
The course will be held on a Saturday. We’re aiming for the end of February (24th), but it will depend on how many are interested in doing it. We may need to organise multiple courses.
The cost per person is €20, plus 66c for the online processing fee. (The actual cost is €60 per person, but the Residents’ Association will be covering the difference.)
