Saving Lives Up Your Street
Well the cold weather is finally here, we have even seen some snow, and by our reckoning 5 times as many frosts as we had in the whole of last winter...its dark and wet and slippery on the districts roads so take your time, make sure you vehicle lights are all working and make sure you have warm clothing and snacks in your car in case you break down and get stranded.
We have just received our stats from SECamb from last year and your team in Sevenoaks gave up over 4,500 hours of their time to be on call responding to 999 calls, in addition to running 25 free public training sessions and training over 450 people in CPR and how to use an AED. The team have also doubled in size, and shortly we will have two more Responders on call when they have completed training.
So the new year means a new training programme starts and this month we were invited by the lovely ladies of the Plaxtol Women's Institute to come and give them some CPR, AED & First Aid training. 30 people turned up which was great and we had a fun evening. We are especially grateful to them for the £280 in donations they made.
If your group or society would like us to come along one evening, then please get in touch via our website at http://www.sevenoakscfrs.org/contactus.html
We have also have two great events coming up. On Tuesday 2nd February at 19.00 Raj Bari Indian Cuisine are holding a Charity Curry Night for us
