Four in Four Months – San Pedro’s New FA/CPR Instructor and Assistant
Sunday, October 18th, 2015
Since July 2015, San Pedro has been fortunate to have a certified FA/CPR (First Aid/ Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) Instructor to conduct training on behalf of the Belize Red Cross (BRC). Ashty Dennison is very proficient and professional and has conducted several trainings, both as Assistant and as an Instructor since her certification in July, 2015.
The San Pedro branch of the BRC is very pleased to announce that regular First Aid and CPR training is now being held every four to six weeks.
On July 30th Ashty conducted her first class as Lead Instructor, along with Assistant Instructor Martin Dawson, also from San Pedro. Staff from The Phoenix Resort and Victoria House attended, and despite a power outage, the training was a great success. The next successful classes were held on August 27th with Consolidated Water Ltd. and September 23rd, when more Victoria House staff were trained.
Every year, as partners with the Belize National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO), BRC is contracted to provide NEMO staff countrywide training in basic First Aid and CPR. On October 6th and 7th Ashty successfully assisted and supported Master Instructor, David Sobers from BRC Headquarters, in training local Public Officers, with additional support from Martin Dawson.
