BHF Scotland supports Glasgow Airport in CPR training

CPR takes off from Glasgow with BHF Scotland

We’re super proud of one of our partner, BHF Scotland. They worked hard to support Glasgow Airport to become the first UK airport to join the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) Nation of Lifesavers campaign.

Glasgow has invested £3800 in ten BHF Scotland Call Push Rescue CPR kits, which will be issued to various departments across the airport including its security, engineering and airfield operations.

The Call Push Rescue training kit will teach airport staff how to recognise the signs of cardiac arrest and carry out CPR on both adults and children. Each kit includes a step-by-step tutorial DVD, demonstrating CPR techniques, which participants then replicate using portable manikins.

The kits will then be passed on to Glasgow Airport’s airline partners, retail outlets and other suppliers to also give more than 5000 employees across the wider campus the opportunity to learn CPR.

Glasgow Airport managing director Amanda McMillan said: “It is inherent in each of us to try to help someone who has suddenly taken ill, but often we can feel helpless due to lack of basic training. The Call Push Rescue CPR kits are an ideal remedy to this as they provide practical, simple and potentially lifesaving training.”

 

James Cant, Director of BHF Scotland, said:

“Knowing that Glasgow Airport’s staff have these skills should be a huge comfort to their families, friends and workmates, as well as the nine million passengers who pass through the airport every year.”

We say, GO GLASGOW, GO BHF!
