Train as a First Aider!

The Emergency Care Group require First Aiders to provide medical cover at public events such as agricultural shows, sporting events, half marathons, vintage rallies etc. They may also have the opportunity of driving one of the emergency vehicles when required. (You must be over 25 and have a full licence for any driving duties).

Volunteers are given full training in all aspects of first aid and ambulance work by an experienced and competent trainer, including a certificated full first aid at work course and additional training in using collapsible stretchers and Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

So if you are able to keep calm in an emergency, have the ability to follow instructions and protocols, work as a team member, are a good communicator and willing to show commitment to the role then this may be the opportunity for you.

If you are interested in this opportunity and would like to know more please contact Rob McGregor at VAO on 872 897
