First Aid Training - Free to SO Members

As a club we would like to increase the coverage of first aid assistance at our events: both to increase the likelihood of a qualified first aider being present should the need arise at a small local event where the formal provision is just ‘first aid kit at download’; and also to make it easier to create a roster of club first aiders for level B/C events whilst still ensuring everyone gets their own run.

We are able to offer a first aid course completely free of charge and the club will also pay for a lunch from the local fish and chip shop.

When: Saturday 11 November 2017, 09:00 - 16:00

Where: Manor Field School, Burgess Hill, RH15 0PZ (car park entrance is off Junction Road)

Outline programme:
0845hrs-0900hrs           Arrive (coffee & biscuits)
0900hrs-1030hrs           Session 1 - Primary Survey/Recovery Position
1030hrs-1045hrs           Break
