Winter Programme At Port Solent

Date:

First aid awareness in Port Solent

Winter Talk – Restart A Heart 

Tuesday 16th October, 18.30 – 21.00

This year in conjunction with Restart a Heart Day, Premier Marinas is teaming up with Red Square Medical to hold an evening talk on Tuesday 16 October to raise awareness of the importance of CPR and how it can be used to save a life. 

The event will include a demonstration on how to use a defibrillator and visiting guest speakers, Jonathan Turner from MAST and Derrick Thorrington of DT Maritime will talk about what things to consider during an air sea rescue and the common problems seafarers can face when in a foreign port. The charity event is free to attend but please book your slot by emailing portsolent@premiermarinas.com

Restart a Heart Day is an annual campaign which aims to train as many people as possible in CPR in one day, so that more people know these lifesaving skills.
