Events First Aid Service Volunteer

  • VO54266


Description

British Red Cross volunteers are fully trained in advanced first aid and are ready to help at any occasion across the UK, from a community event to a stadium-sized rock concert. When accidents happen or illnesses take hold, their knowledge can be vital in saving lives or preventing further injury. As a volunteer you will be trained to provide first aid, occasionally life saving, services to those who need help at public events both in Orkney and across Northern Scotland and to support the ambulance service in accordance with current first aid practice. As you develop your skills you will have access to our diverse learning and development pathways and other exciting internal opportunities such as becoming a first aid instructor or joining our emergency response team.
