Students across Warwickshire are continuing to receive emergency life support training thanks to Heart Shield, a Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service programme delivered in partnership with Public Health Warwickshire and volunteers from Jaguar Landrover’s Business Protection Department.
The main aim of the programme is to help ensure secondary school students are trained in vital skills such as Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). On Tuesday 16th October 2018, national ‘Restart a Heart Day’, 218 students from The Coleshill School attended the training.
The Year 8 students (aged 12-13) took part in the hour long sessions which started with a DVD showing a cardiac arrest scenario and the benefits of bystander CPR. The students undertook practical CPR training, learning how to put someone in the recovery position and how to use a defibrillator.
In a bid to reduce the risk of having a heart attack later in life, students were given key healthy heart messages, including tips on healthy eating and physical activity to help influence their families and friends about reducing the risks of cardiovascular disease. Talking about the programme, Heart Sheild , Niky Moultire Warwickshire County Council’s Fire and Rescue Service said: “As a service we are committed to helping keep our communities safe, and working with young people to learn these life-saving skills is so important. CPR in particular is a very useful skill to learn and can be used by almost anyone, anywhere. The more people we can get involved in this fantastic programme, the more lives we can help to save.”
Mr Temple-Purcell, Head of Year 10 commented “The Coleshill School strives to be at the heart of its community, we are proud that our students contribute to the community in which we live. The ability to save a life is surely a lesson we should all learn.”
