Call Push Rescue Training

This will be a DVD lead training session, with hands on practice on dummies, including

  • Learn CPR
  • Child CPR
  • Recovery Position
  • Defibrillator Awareness

This is approximately a 1 hour session, which will give you the skills that may one day save someone's life.


This training is provided by the British Heart Foundation.


We now have a Public Access Defibrillator in its case on the wall of the village hall.

Simple to use

They are simple and safe. The machine gives clear spoken instructions. You don't need training to use one.

Once in position, the defibrillator detects the heart's rhythm. It won't deliver a shock unless one is needed.



NJT will be running Call Push Rescue courses in the village hall...watch this space.
