Learn how to help in an accident or medical emergency

Four free drop-in sessions are to be held in Uckfield to teach members of the public to learn basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

They will be held at Uckfield fire station on Tuesday, October 10, 7.30-9pm; Wednesday, October 11, 4-6pm; and on Saturday, October 14, at 8.30-10.30am and 10.30am-12.30pm.

The public training sessions are being run by East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service and Uckfield Community First Responders as part of a Restart-a-Heart awareness campaign.

The fire service says, in promoting the sessions: “What would you do in the event of an accident or medical emergency?

“Members of the public are on scene before the emergency services and have been instrumental in maximising peoples’ chances of survival after trauma events.

“To learn basic CPR and what you can do to help others if an event occurs attend one of these free sessions.”

Restart a Heart Week was a big success in the Uckfield area last year with nearly 270 people attending sessions. Read more here.
