October continues to be busy for the CFR's

Written by Sevenoaks CFRs on Wednesday, 21 October 2015

Following the successful launch of our new 4x4 earlier in the month, the team have been in action responding to a wide range of medical emergencies across the district from RTC's, Breathing Difficulties and Diabetic Coma's at all hours of the day and overnight.

In addition to our response duties we have been able to run some training sessions, the last one in Plaxtol last night saw residents getting hands on with training defibrillators and CPR training dummies.





In addition to this Sencio at Sevenoaks Leisure Centre are running a charity Quiz night for us on the 30th October at the Centre.  Tables of 6-8 are available for teams at a cost of £8 a head which includes a cold buffet. There will be a cash bar and also a Prize DRaw with lots of exciting prizes. We are honoured to have been chosen as their nominated charity for this. Do come along for a fun filled evening. We will be putting a team in!

Future dates for your diary

Please remember these messages at this time of year

- Anti-Biotics do nothing to help colds, don't take them if you don't need them because all you are doing is damaging their effectiveness and you may need them for a real infection in the future

- As the weather turns, leaves on the road make surfaces slippery. Slow down! - its better to be five minutes late than not to arrive at all

- Make sure your car is serviceable and all you lights are working.

- Fireworks are dangerous - go to a properly organised display

For life-threatening emergencies it's 999

Call 111 when it's less urgent than 999
