SAVE A LIFE!
CPR Counts, offer free two hour courses on Basic Life Support for Heart Attack, Cardiac Arrest, Choking and use of Defibrillators. The courses take place around the Sutton Coldfield area. Our Marketing Executive attended one of their courses last night, which was held after work at the Sutton Coldfield Methodist Church Centre.
Christabel said, “I found the course extremely informative and the instructor made the course fun and interactive. I now feel confident enough to perform life support if I ever need to. I now know how to put someone into the recovery position, preform CPR, I know what to do if someone is choking and how to use a defibrillator. I highly recommend everyone to attend a life support class. It is a basic skill everyone should have”.
The course is taken by Mike Bennett who is the Lead Resuscitation Officer for Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. Mike and the team run the courses voluntary and give up their time to offer the public valuable life saving skills.
Malcolm Robinson founded CPR Counts, in 2017 Malcolm unfortunately suffered a cardiac arrest and he was lucky enough to have a passer by save his life, as she performed CPR on him for 20 minutes before the ambulance arrived. He has now made it his mission to make sure more people have the vital skills to be able to hopefully save a life!
