Scoraig First Responder Scheme

(report by Susan)

As a community we have successfully raised the £500 and have been awarded a grant of £500 from the Highland Council towards purchasing the defibrillator for Scoraig. A very big thank you to all who contributed.

Part 1 of the First Responder Training was completed on Saturday 28th April. 14 volunteers participated in a very engaging session with the Scottish Ambulance Service trainer, Alan Knox.

We now have the responder kit bag including a defibrillator on the peninsula and the volunteers are able to respond to an emergency as from 6th May.

The training for the volunteers will be on going to ensure the high standard of care and intervention that this life saving service can provide for Scoraig.
