We team up with volunteer firefighters
We have embarked on a partnership with volunteer firefighters at the end of 2017. Local volunteer firefighting departments became involved in the CPR for Schools educational initiative. What does it mean? It means that firefighters will pass their first aid and CPR knowledge to the pupils of local schools by leading extra CPR for Schools classes in the area.
610 units of volunteer fire departments have joined the educational initiative, and it means that firefighters, who already know how to administer first aid, require additional training on how to rely this knowledge to primary school children. The courses are taught by our dedicated CPR for Schools instructors. The training is, of course, free and all volunteer departments are free to join the initiative at any time.
Our charity supports Polish Mountain Volunteer Search & Rescue teams! This time we donated 72 fully equipped "rescue backpacks" and professional paramedic bags worth over 500 000 PLN!
