RAF NCOs organised scenarios to practice first-aid knowledge

On Friday 3rd March, the RAF NCOs organised a series of first-aid scenarios to practise the knowledge and skills necessary for dealing with emergency and non-emergency situations. In addition to the practicals, there was a British Red Cross quiz to test theory. First-Aid is an integral part of the RAF cadet training syllabus and Year 10s have basic first-aid sessions led by trained professionals as part of the programme. Early next term the RAF contingent will send a team to the Wingfield competition for Norfolk and Suffolk Air Cadets, and they will be examined on a series of skills, one of which will be first-aid. We wish the competitors the best of luck and hope that this afternoon will have proved excellent training for the competition.
