Hereford and Worcester Young Firefighters invitation to Monty’s Youth First Aid competition
Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service Young Firefighters Association (YFA) is hosting a first aid competition on Sunday 14 October and inviting other youth groups to join in.
Youth group members who are skilled in first aid, and ready to put their knowledge to the test, are encouraged to participate. Skill level will be basic lifesaving; bandages, breaks, and CPR. Initially one team may register from each group, but if space allows groups can enter a second team.
The event at Droitwich Fire Station will consist of three scenarios per team of three people, with awards and presentations at the end of the day.
The event has been reinstated in memory of Sub Officer Monty Wild, who established the Droitwich Young Firefighters Association, and previously set up and took the lead on the First Aid competitions.
