GSPCA leaning to save human lives thanks to the Cardiac Action Group

The GSPCA helps save animals lives 24/7 365 days a year but without our team and supporters we couldn’t achieve so much.

For the last few years the GSPCA have received a number of training sessions for our team by Mike Froome from the Cardiac Action Group to help learn and for some refresh their skills in CPR and also use an AED.

The GSPCA were very kindly purchased an AED to have onsite by the wonderful Investec team and although thankfully we haven’t had to put it to use, it is an invaluable piece of equipment to have at our very busy Animal Shelter.

This morning Mike once again returned to the GSPCA to run a refreshers for some and others to have their very first training and we are looking forward to a second session tomorrow.

Tim Pellett GSPCA Training and Community Officer said “It was great to have Mike from the Cardiac Action Group back today to run the training sessions with some of our team on CPR and the use of the AED.”

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We are hugely grateful to Investec who bought the AED machine for our site a few years ago now and Mike from the Cardiac Action Group for coming to check it over and also provide the fantastic training.”

“Not only is the GSPCA very busy we are often out in the community and the CPR and AED training helps give the team the knowledge that could save a human life in future.”

“The GSPCA is not just about saving animals lives, we are here for one another and our community and we love to work with other organisations to develop skills and knowledge.”

“Last night we held our Cat First Aid Course and did a Dog one last week, the next courses upcoming are going to be in November and you can book now by going to https://www.gspca.org.gg/services/training-courses  .”
