Headstart with HeartStart for Rushden Air Cadets

Article posted: Mar 24, 2016 by Sqn Ldr Richards

RAF Air Cadets and Staff from 858 (Rushden) Squadron recently learnt the basics in First Aid by completing their HeartStart course.

First aid is an important part of the RAF Air Cadets’ syllabus and is mandatory for all staff and cadets to undertake. Those who attended are now trained in how to deal with bleeds, choking and how to administer CPR and help casualties in to the recovery position.

This is the first step in the cadets’ first aid training and they will now go on to complete their St Johns Ambulance Youth First Aid Course later this year.
