CPR Training (Free) - Your Local Fire Station

CPR - British heart Foundation.pngThe Scottish Fire & Rescue Service has joined forces with the British Heart Foundation  to help save lives across the country by providing fire stations as a base for members of the public to teach themselves CPR. This partnership is one part of the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service's commitment to support the Scottish Government's Out of Hosptial Cardiac Arrest Strategy, which aims to save an extra 1,000 lives in Scotland by 2020.
 
Tollcross and Liberton Fire Stations are both participating in this scheme and the training is FREE.    The Fire Stations now have instructional DVDs and mannequins which can be made available to members of public to help teach them how to conduct CPR. 

Fire & Rescue ServiceThe Fire Stations are running two sessions a month;  one at Tollcross Fire Station,  Ponton Street, EH3 9BP and one at Liberton Fire Station, Kirk Brae, EH16 6HT  (Dates yet to be confirmed as at 21.01.16). 

In addition to this Fire Crews could attend any groups interested in this input.  The group would simply need a venue with DVD player and screen.

Any individual or group interested should contact the Station Manager directly.  See below.

If you don't live/work in South Central or Liberton Gilmerton Neighbourhood Partnership areas and want to find out if your local Station is part of the scheme, check their website.  http://www.firescotland.gov.uk/
