Coventry Blaze players and coach are going back to the classroom next week to learn a valuable skill. The players, alongside their wives, will be taking part in a paediatric first aid session which is being provided by Blaze partner MTC.
Jordan Pietrus, Brett Robinson, Ryan Dingle and Danny Stewart will all be taking part in the session where they will learn invaluable, life saving skills. These players all have very young children and the knowledge of what to do in an emergency can actually save lives.
The course will cover all manner of situations including choking, blood loss, convulsions and more. In an emergency situation it can take 8 minutes for an ambulance to arrive so having these essential skills really could save a life.
Captain Jordan Pietrus said ‘As a father of a little girl I think it suddenly becomes so much more important to have a basic understanding of these life saving skills. When you become a parent and you are responsible for this tiny person who relies on you, you just want to do everything in your power to keep them safe. I hope there would never be a circumstance when I would need to put any of our learning into practice, however having the opportunity to learn these skills will give me additional peace of mind that I would know what to do should the worst ever happen. We’re all really looking forward to the course’
MTC Director, Paul Ingram, said ‘’The Midlands Training Company UK Ltd. are proud to be working with Coventry Blaze, showcasing one of our most popular courses. It demonstrates the importance of first aid awareness for everyone and teaches invaluable lifesaving skills. We have been working with the local community and the course has been delivered to primary school children, support staff as well as parents and carers of children at local day nurseries in Coventry and across the midlands”
The course will take place on the 5th December 2017
