East Anglian Air Ambulance has funding to provide free CPR and AED training in schools, to staff and pupils (from Yr 5/6). Each session is approximately an hour long but it can be delivered flexibly to fit around school timetables and pupil needs. Sessions can also take place throughout the day so whole year groups can be trained as required.
The session covers: the EAAA lifesaving service, the first aid acronym DRSABC and the medical difference between heart attack and cardiac arrest.
There is a particular focus on how to deliver effective CPR and to use a community defib.
All equipment is supplied to enable pupils to have a hands on experience.
