FAO: ALL MEMBERS
St Canice’s GAC have been part of this community initiative where a large number of Defibrillators have been brought into our community and placed in various locations all around the town. We have one located at the front of our club premises for convenience to the General Public and in close proximity to Páirc Ui Catháin and a second located at Páirc na n-Óg.
Now that all these defibrillators are in place, Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) are facilitating a familiarisation day with a focus on CPR and Defibrillator training.
This will take place on Saturday 25th November in Dungiven Library. There are 4 time slots…
10.00am – 11.00am
11.15am – 12.15pm
1.00pm – 2.00pm
2.15pm – 3.15pm

However doing this course is not restricted to managers and coaches or people involved with teams, it is open to all club members.
