Firefighters support CPR for Schools initiative!
Volunteer Fire Departments (Związek Ochotniczych Straży Pożarnych Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej ) will be joining the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation in all efforts connected with the Foundation's educational programme CPR for Schools. The aim of this educational initiative is to introduce first aid and basic life support - CPR training to children in primary schools across the country. The free lessons are conducted by teachers who receive free training and teaching aids from the Foundation.
Volunteer firefighters are qualified first aid professionals and, with more than 50 thousand trained firefighters in their ranks, these volunteer units are perfect instructors and great role models for kids.
Each department, which is interested in becoming the partner of the CPR for Schools Programme will be equipped with free teaching aids and instructed on how to work with their young students. The training on how to teach first aid to children will also be provided by the Foundation.
