Cadets from across the South West took part in the 1 Artillery and South West Brigade Cadets First Aid competition.

Dorset ACF First Aid Team

The competition assessed their skills in managing an emergency situation, making the area safe and dealing with any casualties, with simulated injuries from broken bones to burns and sprains.

The teams from Dorset ACF were victorious in the competition, with the combined team from B Company (North Dorset) and C Company (rural East Dorset) winning the junior competition and the team from D Company (South Dorset) the victors in the senior competition.

The cadets learn all aspects of First Aid as part of their training syllabus, and achieve nationally recognized certificates, starting with HeartStart at basic level through to First Aid at Work certificate for the more senior cadets. This is all achieved at no additional cost to the cadets.
