New CPR training set up for Dobbies staff in Morpeth and Ponteland
and live on Freeview channel 276
A total of 4,000 team members across all 76 of its stores and its Central Support Office are being encouraged to complete RevivR – the BHF’s online tool which teaches vital CPR skills for free in just 15 minutes – and all that is needed is a mobile phone and a firm cushion to practice on.
RevivR shows how to recognise a cardiac arrest, gives feedback on chest compressions and outlines the correct steps of using a defibrillator, giving anyone the confidence to help in the ultimate medical emergency.
Paul Green, head of people experience at Dobbies, said: “We are proud to be working with the BHF on this important initiative, which we hope will help save lives.”
