First Aid has been an extremely busy area for BCAEC this month. A special weekend course was put on earlier in May due to public demand. The regular evening course for Term 2 started last Thursday and there was an additional CPR Update course on Saturday, 31st May.
The surge in interest reflects an increasing awareness in the community of how important it is to know what to do in an emergency situation. Any one of us could be the one who makes a difference and saves a life.
Recently, the CPR and First Aid Courses were expanded to include a component on using Automated External Defibrillators, which are becoming more widely available in workplaces and public buildings.
