Over the last few months we have received numerous calls and enquiries from potential clients for short notice First Aid Training in and around Bideford and Barnstaple area.  Most of these calls were for 1 or 2 people and they couldn't make the dates for our advertised Open EFAW courses or they needed training which we don't supply open courses ie Paediatric courses.

Hot Topic no 3.

Would you know what to do if someone collasped in front of you?

You might get out your phone and dial 999 and ask for the Ambulance service but would you know what life saving things you could do in those vital minutes whilst you are waiting for the Emergency Sevices to arrive?
