Life­saver ses­sions

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

Kirk­michael Ses­sion House is or­gan­is­ing a Heart­start Dis­cov­ery work­shop in the Vil­lage Hall.

The work­shop, which is on Tues­day, Novem­ber 21, from 7pm to 9pm, will teach sim­ple emer­gency life-sav­ing skills (ELS).

They in­clude deal­ing with an un­con­scious per­son who is breath­ing, per­form­ing Car­diopul­monary Re­sus­ci­ta­tion (CPR), deal­ing with chok­ing, se­ri­ous bleed­ing, and how to recog­nise the signs and symp­toms of a heart at­tack.

Or­gan­is­ers say the course is very prac­ti­cal and hand­son, and that no med­i­cal knowl­edge is nec­es­sary. A cer­tifi­cate of at­ten­dance is sent to all par­tic­i­pants.

To book a place, con­tact Pet­rina Men­zies on 01250 881770 or 882242 or email kirk­michaelsh@bt­con­nect. com.

The work­shop is free but a small do­na­tion on the night to cover the hall rental cost would be ap­pre­ci­ated.
