Safe Heart award for Brentwood School
7:00am Friday 25th October 2013 in Local news
A SCHOOL has won a national award after investing in defibrillator machines and training staff to use them.
Brentwood School picked up the UK Safe Heart of the Year award in the education establishment category at a ceremony in Manchester.
David Crane, a trained first aider and the combined cadet force staff instructor at the school, collected the award and said it was a proud moment for him.
He added: “Everyone likes to win, but more importantly it demonstrates how far we, as a school, have improved the quality of life support within the campus.
“We now have 50 plus staff who are fully trained first aiders, the equipment is available throughout the school and it’s this commitment to training I believe has been the key to our success, and is why we won the award.”
