Leicester Forest Rugby Club Get 'Hands On' to Learn Lifesaving Skills

'Congratulations' to everyone at Leicester Forest Rugby Club who have gone the extra mile to be better prepared and ready to deal with someone who suffers a cardiac arrest ‪#‎SADS

14 coaches/players from the club took part in JMHS4S - AED familarisation training led by JHMT's Alan Harrison White last night at the club's new club house. The club's AED will be sited outside the club house in an external defib' cabinet which will enable the equipment to be accessible 24/7 to the wider community, including the tennis and cricket club who are also are on the same campus.

Alan's message to sports clubs is simple ' Learn CPR resuscitation skills and get a defibrillator it could save a life.'

In addition to support and advice from JHMT, the Trust also awarded a grant to the club towards the purchase of the external defibrillator box.

' I hope this fantastic example of safety in sport by Leicester Forest Rugby Club to ensure all players and club officals better prepared and ready to deal with someone who suffers cardiac arrest, also triggers a dominoe effect across all of the Leicestershire rugby family. There couldn't be a better time right now with the Rugby World Cup only days away and clubs looking to welcome new members into having a most enjoyable rugby experience in a safe environment ' - added Steve Humphries - Chair of JHMT
