6th Monton Brownies - Basic Life Training

Trainers from the Advanced Life Support Group visited 6th Monton Brownies over 2 meetings delivering sessions an hour long to show the Brownies and leaders how to deal with both life-threatening and non-life-threatening situations. 

Amongst other things, the Brownies were shown what to do in the event of cardiac arrests and someone choking.  They were also shown how to put a casualty into the recovery position, which they were able to practise on each other.

The leader commented, “The course was very well presented for this age group and kept the girls' interest all the way through.”

The global medical education charity, which is based in Swinton, runs courses for groups in Salford free of charge and can be contacted via email:
