Crewkerne Aqua Centre is offering a free workshop in CPR, for anyone over 16 years of age. The workshop will be run by one of the lifeguard trainers at the public swimming pool and gym/physical fitness centre, situated at Henhayes in Crewkerne.
The importance of learning how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation was highlighted during Saturday’s UEFA Euro 2020 match between Denmark and Finland. The opening Group B match at Parken Stadium in Copenhagen was stopped, when Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch and needed CPR from the medical team, who responded quickly to the emergency.
Over 16’s who are interested in signing up for the free training in CPR at Crewkerne Aqua Centre are asked to phone 01460 77665, visit Crewkerne Aqua Centre Facebook page to contact the centre through messenger or use the link on http://aquacentre.co.uk Saturday’s emergency incident during the European Football Championship has also led to calls for more defibrillators to be placed at football grounds and in other public spaces.
