Emergency Awareness Training

Our mission of saving lives has been extended to schools all over the county.

Our Emergency Awareness Training (EAT) programme is an interactive training session for children at primary and secondary schools and delivers a  range of lifesaving skills, from carrying out CPR, making a 999 call, putting an injured person in the recovery position, helping someone who is choking and controlling bleeding.

It is our ambition to teach every school age child in Wiltshire how to deliver CPR and other emergency skills. Our programme is a really valuable outreach project delivering vital lifesaving skills. We hope that in the event of a medical emergency the children who we train will have the knowledge and confidence to respond accordingly and ultimately their actions may help to save lives.

Paramedic Simon Stigwood is our emergency awareness training officer and has been a paramedic in Wiltshire for 15 years.

"It’s rewarding engaging with young people and they have enjoyed learning new skills that are about preserving life and promoting recovery. We tailor the sessions to different age groups and needs of the schools.

Many of the schools who have taken part have gone on to fundraise for Wiltshire Air Ambulance which we are so grateful for.”
