SEVEN Air Cadets from 1220 (March) Squadron were presented with their red St John Youth First Aid Award badges.

They completed a 12-week first aid course run at the Squadron HQ by Flight Sergeant Lauren Arnold and passed an assessment day.

The cadets were taught how to deal with broken bones and bleeds, when to use the recovery position, CPR (resuscitation) and what to do when a casualty is in shock.

Cadet Kyle McLean, 14, used the first aid training for the skill section of his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

He said “I’ve really enjoyed learning a new skill and one that will be really useful.

“I hope I never actually have to use it, but feel confident that I could deal with a situation if I needed to.”
