5F (Northampton) Sqn entered the Central & East Regional Field Day First Aid Competition and walk away with the first place trophy.

The cadets competed against 5 other teams in the Region at RAF Wittering on Sunday 2nd September 07. The cadets in the team Cadet Flight Sergeant Damian Lord, Cadet Megan Scotney, Cadet Andrew Willis, Cadet Luke Vanderhoven and the reserve Cadet Ilia Sumnall all worked very hard training for this event and competed to a very high standard on the day of competition.

The scenario involved two parachutists who had a collision just before landing one, with neck / spine trauma with an open fracture of upper leg and the other with neck / spine trauma with a fractured skull, and then a bystander had a cardiac arrest.

The cadets and staff from the Sqn hope this is the start of a very successful future in First Aid Competitions!!

Well done to the cadets in the team.
