Casualty / First Aid Service

The Casualty/First Aid service is often the most recognised within the Civil Defence organisation. This is because members play a very active role in providing first aid and ambulance services at community events such as sports events, concerts and festivals. Members are trained in diagnosing of injuries, treatment/transportation of patients, CPR training(heart massage and mouth to mouth resuscitation) and AED training (use of defibrillators).
