'Restart a Heart'

Restart a Heart Event
Margaret Bowers (Blanchland Community First Responder) has been into school to work with all our children (Nursery to Year 4).
With the younger children, she ran through what you should do in an emergency and how to dial 999 or 112. She also showed them how to place a person in the recovery position.
In addition, the older children received training in CPR. They were able to work on 'dummies' in order to practise repeatedly pressing the chest 30 times. However, they were too young to practise the breathing.
I'm sure you'll agree, a very worthwhile visit!
