On Saturday, volunteers from St John Scotland’s Glasgow area held a successful CPR training event in Kilsyth.
Members of the public dropped by to learn bystander CPR techniques, which could provide vital in an emergency. They were also able to watch a demonstration of how to operate an Automated External Defibrillator, giving people the confidence to step in and use the device if needed.
Lorraine More and daughter Emma took part in the training on Saturday. Lorraine said: “I’d learned CPR before, but it was good to have a refresher, and doing hands-only CPR was a lot easier than I had been taught previously. Hopefully I won’t have to use it, but it’s good to have the knowledge if I need it!”
St John Scotland runs CPR training across the country as part of Save a Life for Scotland, a project aiming to teach 500,000 people hands-only CPR by 2020.
