Beating The Drum For First Aid Skills – Bendigo Advertiser
Less than a quarter of Victorians are qualified and confident to provide First Aid in the event of a health emergency.
In an attempt to increase these numbers St John Ambulance’s CPR Lab visited Bendigo to provide free CPR lessons to the community at Hargreaves Mall on Wednesday 30th August.
The visit saw 100 people, who otherwise were untrained and not confident to provide CPR in an emergency, complete CPR lessons with St John Ambulance Victoria professional trainers.
