CPR Coordinator Volunteer - Fife

  • VO89595


Description

Our CPR Coordinator will support the delivery of bystander CPR demonstrations to community groups across your local area. The demonstrations are very hands on - we aim to give people the skills they need to recognise a cardiac arrest and take the appropriate action. We work with schools (from Primary 1 and above), community groups, businesses and other organisations. Demonstrations are organised and delivered by volunteers. St John Scotland promote the placing of Public Access Defibrillators in communities across Scotland and offer free CPR and defibrillator awareness as part of this work.

• Respond to training requests to build a calendar of CPR events to be delivered by our CPR Champion volunteers
• Lead a small CPR Champion volunteer team. Your role will be to communicate with the volunteers and organise regular volunteer meetings, including initial training sessions.
• Organise events, taking into account the individual requirements of the request, volunteer availability and travel distance
• Deliver bystander CPR training to people of all ages and backgrounds
• Manage the equipment required for the delivery of CPR events – training for this will be provided

Organisation aims and objectives

St John Scotland was formed in 1947, and for more than 70 years we have helped improve the lives of people in need through our charitable work. Today, our teams of members, volunteers and supporters across the country run projects which help save and enhance lives every day. These include our volunteer-run Patient Transport services, which provide free, comfortable transport to help patients get to hospital, and are a lifeline for hundreds of people going through cancer treatment or dialysis each year.
