Visit to Kendal Fire Station

Following a previous visit to look around Kendal Fire Station and discuss careers available in the service, the students were invited back to take part in ‘Heart Start’ first aid training. Yaseera, Korim, Dominic and Joshua participated fully in learning skills in how to put a casualty into the recovery position and carrying out CPR. They also learnt how to deal with someone choking and dealing with severe bleeding as well as identifying symptoms of a heart attack.  During the visit, the fire crew were taking part in a minutes silence to pay their respects to the lives lost in the Manchester incident earlier in the week. The students showed great respect throughout and felt privileged to be invited to take part in this with the crew.
