Central Otago Mirror - - FEATURES -

First Aid So­lu­tions is a Duned­in­based com­pany who are NZQA ac­cred­ited through their par­ent com­pany Med­i­train. First Aid So­lu­tions have now got an in­struc­tor based in Cen­tral Otago. Lo­cal man Gra­ham Sin­clair has taken up the chal­lenge to spread his knowl­edge throughout the area in the way of in­struct­ing first aid cour­ses and re­stock­ing first aid kits to re­quire­ment. This is great news for Cen­tral, as now all the spe­cials that are of­fered in Dunedin can be ex­tended to busi­nesses throughout Cen­tral. The first of­fer which First Aid So­lu­tions has put out to the community is free first aid ses­sions for se­nior pri­mary school chil­dren, years 6 – 8. This has been run­ning in Dunedin very suc­cess­fully for all of 2012. There has been a great re­sponse from it. Now First Aid So­lu­tions is hop­ing to arm the chil­dren of Cen­tral Otago with the same skills and knowl­edge. Gra­ham is look­ing for­ward to get­ting in­volved with all the pri­mary schools and get­ting them on board with this pro­gramme, help­ing to bet­ter pre­pare the chil­dren for an emer­gency. Gra­ham Sin­clair is a lo­cal Alexan­dra res­i­dent and has pre­vi­ously been trained as a para­medic with St John. Gra­ham’s out­go­ing and friendly per­son­al­ity and his ex­ten­sive first aid knowl­edge has made him the per­fect choice to join the First Aid So­lu­tions team and head up the Cen­tral Otago branch.
