Warwickshire Fire & Rescue Service

In our last newsletter we were very pleased to announce that we are providing FPOS Intermediate courses to Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service. We have now trained over 100 staff, from full-time and retained firefighters to Junior Officers. The feedback received so far has been great, with many of the firefighters really seeing the benefit to themselves, their colleagues and members of the public. Several have already been asking about opportunities to train, and test their skills on a regular basis.

Staffordshire Fire Cadets FPOS Basic

We were asked by Staffordshire Fire Service to run a first aid programme for their cadet scheme that was based at Lichfield Fire Station. After discussions it was decided to deliver the FPOS Basic course from Edexcel. This was chosen as it was quite a practical course and gave the students a BTEC qualification.

Improve Cardiac Arrest Survival

Some of you may be aware that there are lots of drives to improve the survival rates from cardiac arrest. One of the major factors in raising the survival rate is the use of a defibrillator. The quicker a defibrillator is applied to a person in cardiac arrest, the better their chance of survival. To this end, we would ask if you could spare a few minutes to support two petitions created by SADS UK (sadsuk.org.uk).

Do you need fire training that is specific to your type of business, be it residential care, schools, healthcare, manufacturing, warehousing or office based? If so we have a course for you.

Blog Items

A few recent articles from our blog 'Cough CPR' is something that we have blogged about previously. We have recently had quite a few people ask about this and have also noticed an increase in false information appearing on social media. Click here to read more on 'Cough CPR'.
