Heartstart Discovery is running a free two-hour training session in emergency life support for members of the public in Carnoustie this month.
Being able to perform emergency life support gives a casualty the best possible chance of survival.
Courses are free-of-charge and no medical knowledge is required in order to undertake one. It only takes two hours to learn the skills which may save a life and it is very likely that the person you help may be a family member or someone close to you.
The sessions cover: Caring for an unconscious person who is breathing, caring for an unconscious person who is not breathing and performing CPR, how to recognise the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and how to deal with it, helping someone who is choking and helping someone who is bleeding badly.
Places are still available at Carnoustie on Tuesday, June 17 7-9 p.m.
Helen Brady, Heartstart Discovery Co-ordinator, said: “Emergency life support skills really do save lives, so please consider registering for a session today. A Heartstart session could prove to be one of the most important training sessions you have ever undertaken in your life. You can make a difference.”
