    Also they do make you lie on the floor at times so wear comfortable clothes too.

    Always do, my days of high heels and mini skirts are long gone!!
    We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.

    They're used as makeshift pillows and tourniquets.
    Apparently the 1st rule of 1st aid is "always use someone else's kit"

    Excellent evening, very informative and well worth attending

    Just got home from doing the "biker down" course at the Wiltshire air ambulance base, I honestly can't recommend it enough, it was a good informative evening and Dean and Fred are very good at getting the point across in a way where the important information sticks in your head, I hope I never need to use what I learnt tonght but it's in there if it's needed.
    if you've not done the course then book it, it's free and could save a life.

    A couple of days after doing the course I found an old lady lying in the road at Morrisons.
    After helping her (she was fine and a passing friend gave her a lift home) I realised I'd captured the whole thing on my cam.
    I watched in horror as I did everything wrong.
    Didn't block off the road, ran straight over, had my back to oncoming traffic etc.
    I guess you can't educate some people.

    Ah well, Wiltshire Builders, most importantly you stopped and helped and recognise the mistakes so should be ok next time.

    Coming out of Bristol last week some guy rolled his car right in front of us.
    It was a 30mph bit of road and the guy was fine, just a bit shook up, so there was no need for our newly learnt skills.
    But, you just never know when something is gonna go bang.

    Tis a very worthwhile course. If you haven't already, go and do one
    Everything else is shyte
