Wing First Aid Competition 1st Place Winners!

First_aid_comp_2014The Squadron First Aid Teams competed in the Annual Bedfordshire & Cambridgeshire Wing First Aid Competition at ACF Waterbeach in Cambridge.

The young adults team (Cdt Flt Sgt Oxby and Cdt Sgt Lockie) and youth team (Cdts Avery, Ransome, Sharp and Shields) entered and won first place in their categories and received Gold medals on the day and to represent the Wing in the Central & East Regional competition in September.

The scenarios would have challenged many professionals, but the squadron training and preparation obviously paid of as the cadets calmly and competently dealt with a dog bite, unconscious casualty with a spinal injury, a second casualty with a fractured femur and finally one with a punctured lung.

The actors on the day made each simulation with make up and reactions as realistic as possible – the cadets showed great leadership, teamwork, self-confidence and first aid skills!

Cdt Flt Sgt Oxby said “It’s great that we’ve been given the training and opportunity to allow us to improve on last years result.”

Cdt Sgt Lockie added “It was great experience, the feeling when they announced we’d won both times was fantastic and very rewarding.”
