Basic Life Support Awareness Training Sessions

The Bracknell BID has hosted its latest Basic Life Support Awareness Training Session at Ozone Ice Rink, Bracknell in the Southern Business Area. This session provided attendees with potentially life saving knowledge on what to do in an emergency situation when someone is unresponsive, effectively performing CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), give them confidence to save a life and learn how to administer a defibrillator correctly if it is needed. A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart of someone who is in cardiac arrest. This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it’s an essential part in trying to save the life of someone who’s in cardiac arrest. The Basic Life Support Awareness Training was delivered by the South Central Ambulance Charity.

This work ties into Objective 2 Business growth and investment, which aims to support businesses in Bracknell to grow, develop and invest by creating a great working environment to operate effectively and attract and retain the best people. It ties into Activity 2 Facilities and benefits (b) Develop schemes, benefits and events for those who work in businesses in the BID area which promote the feeling of community, a sense of well-being and encourages staff retention and productivity. 

The Bracknell BID has also funded and installed publicly accessible defibrillators within the area. For more information regarding the locations and defibrillators, click here.

The BID would like to thank Alan from the South Central Ambulance Charity, Ozone Ice Rink and Breakaway Bar & Food for helping facilitate this event, as well as all of those who attended.
