2 further Air Cadets from Crowle Squadron have recently qualified as First Aiders. The cadets join the majority of the cadets at the Squadron who have completed their St Johns Youth First Aid Training.
The course covers many difference aspects of First Aid, from how to recognise the symptoms of a heart attack to how to deal with broken bones and server bleeding. It is a mixture of both theory and practical demonstration, as well as hands on practice by the cadets. After the teaching was conducted, the cadets were assessed with 3 different scenarios and had to demonstrate their first aid skills in a practical way.
Flight Lieutenant J Docherty, Officer Commanding Crowle Air Cadets said “First Aid is a valuable skill for the cadets to learn. You always hope they will never need to use their skills, but it is reassuring to know that thy have them if needed.” He continued “Almost all the cadets on the Squadron have now completed their first aid training. We should be a very safe Squadron if anyone has an accident”
First Aid is just one of the many skills Crowle Squadron offers to its members, both cadets and staff. Air Cadets is a youth organisation open to anyone aged 13-17. It is also open to those over 20 who wish to join as a staff.
