Another Class of Volunteers Trained

Thursday October 17th’s ACFR volunteer responder training class went very well. 8 beginners went through their Community First Responder class in the Pillo Hotel and 2 CFR-certified volunteers joined us for the policies revue section of the class. A total of 18 have now completed the ACFR training. November will include 2 training sessions; one on the 9th for beginners will include the CFR training; the other on the 3rd is for healthcare providers that are already CPR certified and need only complete the ACFR policies revue.

Sign-up for both November classes is at http://www.ashbournecfr.org/events/

We are now confident that by Nov 9th we will have 30 people trained and ready to begin responding. Fundraising is quickly becoming the crucial link that will get us operational in January. We’ve started actively seeking sponsorship; a collection will be on the streets on October 26th; and we’ll be bag-packing in Tesco on Nov 22nd and 23rd. Every penny counts, so please help out when you see us out there …
