First Aid Success for Longhill CCF Cadets

Posted in Homepage, News - March 9th, 2018

For the last half term, Capt Tester, of Longhill Combined Cadet Force, has been running the St John’s Ambulance’ Young Lifesavers Award (ACFA) for a number of the school’s cadets.

They took part in many, many hours or both theoretical and practical training in varied areas of first aid such as dealing with electric shocks, asthma attacks, heat exhaustion, allergic reactions, resuscitation, plus many more.

Last week those who attended the course were able to be assessed, practically and theoretically, in order to gain their ‘Youth First Aider Status’ – a great stepping stone onto more advanced First Aid qualifications.

This has also allowed them to gain and wear the St John’s YFA badge to show off their new skills and achievement.   The award can also be used toward their upcoming Duke of Edinburgh award.

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the students and instructors, Longhill CCF is proud to announce that we have a 98% pass rate for this course.  Well done to all who passed. The next stage is to look into National First Aid Competitions.

The following cadets will now be ready to assist in a First Aid incident at a moment’s notice!:
