Look out, St John Ambulance are about
1 September 2016
We save lives all year round, but September is always an extra
special month for us.
This year we’re heading out to city squares, shopping centres,
libraries, parks and anywhere we might find people like you –
and we’re teaching lifesaving skills.
We know that first aid is the difference between a life lost and
a life saved, so we’re holding free demonstrations across the
country that will give you the knowledge and confidence to act in
an emergency. Whether it’s Nan choking on her roast dinner, or your
neighbour getting carried away with the garden sheers, the few
minutes you spend with one of our trainers could be vital to saving
“Just one in 10 people have the skills to save a life and we’re
determined to change this”
Find your nearest free first aid demonstration this month and
walk away knowing that you could be the difference between a life
lost and a life saved.

could have given them a chance to live. If you have a first aid
story, you can help us to raise awareness of the importance of
these lifesaving skills.
