Free life-saving training

A PIONEERING partnership scheme offering free emergency life-support training to people across Derbyshire is to launch in September.

First aid charity St John Ambulance, the British Heart Foundation through its Heartstart initiative, and East Midlands Ambulance Service are joining forces to run the Derbyshire Save a Life Scheme, aimed at equipping as many people as possible with vital life-saving knowledge.

With free two-hour ‘emergency life support’ training courses on offer from September, the scheme will run on a rolling programme for two years.

Bolsover will be targeted during September and October.

The scheme will span the whole of the county throughout and is expected to target specific districts at certain times during the project.
