Over the weekend of July 4th and 5th myself and seven cadets from 148 (Barnsley) Squadron attended a red badge St John’s first aid course at our Squadron HQ.

Over the two days we learned many new skills; we learned how to put someone in the recover position, perform CPR, help someone who is having a heart attack and deal with bleeds and wounds to name but a few. We were able to put each other in the recover position and also bandage wounds which was a little tricky at first!

It was a great weekend and all the cadets enjoyed it immensely while gaining themselves a recognised qualification. Thank you to the staff that ran the course and also fellow Cadets who came to help out and act as our casualties.
