2:00pm Monday 9th September 2013 in News
ST JOHN Ambulance got a donation with a difference from The Royal Society of St George in Warrington.
The group, who take on many charitable campaigns, have handed the town’s branch of St John Ambulance an intubation trainer, which is used to train advanced first aiders in intubation techniques, passing a tube down the windpipe to maintain an airway.
President of the society, Fred Langhorne and treasurer Alun Davies visited the St John Ambulance Unit in Bewsey to present the Intubation, appropriately nicknamed George.
Mr Langhorne said: “We’re thrilled to be able to help the local St John Ambulance volunteers with this, who knows how many lives they might go on to save?
“St John Ambulance promotes all that is good about the people of our country, especially the youth and is exactly the sort of organisation we like to support.”
Alison Williams, unit manager for St John Ambulance, said: “We’re very grateful to the Royal Society of St George for this very kind donation. It will enable us to train our volunteers in the complex techniques of maintaining an airway and this can be crucial when dealing with casualties.”
