Last week the pupils at Minard and Furnace Primary Schools learned skills for life when they undertook Junior Heart Start training with local specialist Andy Craven. Andy taught all of our pupils the ‘ABC’ of saving lives.
A – how to assess the situation if someone appears to be a casualty, to check for danger and ‘shake and shout’.
B – how to check for breathing, tilting the casualty’s head, lifting their chin, looking, listening and feeling for breath.
C – how to put the casualty into the recover position, call 999 and if necessary perform CPR.
