Learn to save a life

THERE’S still time for Horsham residents to book their place on this month’s St John Ambulance first aid course.

The half day ‘Essentials of First Aid’ course will be held at the charity’s Horsham divisional HQ at 35 Victoria Street on November 26 and there are still a few places available.

The course will cover the main emergency first aid scenarios including how to resuscitate an adult, child or infant, how to treat severe bleeding, chest pains and unconscious casualties and how to treat a casualty who’s choking.

The training will take place between 9am and noon and costs £25. Refreshments are included in the price and car parking is available.

Anyone interested in booking a place should contact Steve Strange on 01403 210371 or email steve.strange@sussex.sja.org.uk

Those who successfully complete the course will receive an Emergency Aid first aid certificate valid for three years.

Anyone over the age of 12 can attend though under-16s must be accompanied by an adult.
