Heartstart Discovery course to be held in Montrose

HEARTSTART Discovery will run a free two-hour training session in emergency life support in Montrose later this month.

The free course teaches the set of actions needed to keep someone alive until professional help arrives, giving a casualty the best possible chance of survival. No medical knowledge is required and it only takes two hours to learn the skills which may save a life. Subjects covered include caring for an unconscious person who is breathing; caring for an unconscious person who is not breathing and performing CPR; how to recognise the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and how to deal with that; helping someone who is choking and helping someone who is bleeding badly

The class will take place on Friday, March 22 from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

Helen Brady, Heartstart Discovery co-ordinator said, “Emergency life support skills really do save lives, so please consider registering for a session today. You can make a difference”
