The London Ambulance Service’s Public Education Team have been working with our School Liaison Police Officers on a project to help educate pupils around the dangers and consequences of knife crime.
The hard-hitting presentation, delivered by two London Ambulance Service paramedics also includes practical emergency life-saving training including practicing CPR with the use of mannequins.
Once again the behaviour and engagement of our young learners was fantastic, and earned special praise from the visiting paramedics.
The feedback from our students indicated that nearly all of them found the information both interesting and useful and that, without exception they understood and felt confident in using the techniques they’d practiced during the workshops. They made it clear that they would be more likely now to try and help if they saw someone suffering a medical emergency.
Importantly, the students said they now had a better understanding of the dangers associated with knives.
Thanks to the London Ambulance Service from all of us at RAP for coming in to deliver this vital information.
