Congratulations to Four Herefordshire volunteers who have just qualified as Heartstart Instructors. This 3-stage process began with learning the Heartstart Five How’s –
1. Help someone who is unconscious
2. Recognize the warning signs of a Heart Attack
3. Perform CPR
4. Deal with choking
5. Deal with serious bleeding
The second stage started last year, involved gaining experience in running courses by helping experienced instructors. The volunteers recently completed the third stage when they under went instructor training at the County Hospital Hereford.
As qualified instructors, the volunteers will be able run their own two hour Heartstart courses on behalf of Herefordshire Heartstart. Teaching the simple skills that save lives, all over Herefordshire.
