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 – Save a Life Septemberand 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 someone’s life.

“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.

How else can I save a life?
