TWO HOURS THAT COULD BE WORTH A LIFETIME
Your chance to sign up for free ‘Heartstart’ course
Burnley Council have teamed up with the North West Ambulance Service to arrange a series of ‘Heartstart’ courses.
People attending a two hour session will learn about
- Dealing with an unconscious person
- Signs and symptoms of a heart attack
- Recognising a cardiac arrest and performing CPR
- Using a defibrillator
- Dealing with choking
- Dealing with serious bleeding
Burnley Council has already installed defibrillators in its main buildings, and more will appear over the coming months, including in the pedestrianised town centre area which is currently being improved.
