18th April 2013

14 BSAR Team members where trained tonight by North West Ambulance Service on the use of AED’s (Defibrillators) and had update training on practical CPR. So we now have 3 new AEDs which will be located on our Vehicles and Hagglunds at their various locations and a fully qualified team.

In the event of an emergency dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard (coastal rescue) or Fire & Rescue (land rescue).

For advice call the Team Duty Officer on the 24/7 Direct Number: 0300 999 0333 and if required we will inform the appropriate service.
