First Aid

The Squadron carries out mandatory first aid training for all cadets and staff.

Brand new cadets will complete their Heartstart award – that teaches CPR – in their first 2 months. They will then complete their Youth First Aid award within 5 months of joining.

Adults and older cadets also take part in a 2 day Adult First Aid course. All adults must have a first aid qualification in order to be an active member.

We’re fortunate enough to have a fully qualified Paramedic on Squadron – Sgt Luke Pether, as well as an Ambulance Technician – Sgt Peter McCarry. The  Commanding Officer has also been a First Aider for 21 years, qualified through the entire period, and helps with assessments.
