First Aid TrainingFree to SO Members

20150913 Ppr0516

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.
