First Aid Training for Men's Shed Guys

One of the benefits of being a Men's Shed Vernon guy is our focus on Health & Safety. We have all the PPE equipment, equipment safety orientation, a fully stocked safety corner, and safety trained guys likely to be on hand. Ten of our Men's Shed guys were recently given the opportunity to be prepared to be first aid front line guys at The Shed, and in our community. We attended a great one day Industrial Emergency First Aid Level 1 course at St. John Ambulance.

We learned about how to provide care to a host of scenarios and keep people stable until the professionals arrive, if needed. We even learned how to use our AED defibrillator.

Our instructor Calum, was a firefighter, and first responder for 10 years, and his experience really shone through the instruction content.

Thanks to the United Way Lower Mainland program that recognizes the value of Men's Sheds across BC for the funding to attend.
