Anyone who lives or works in Bishop's Stortford can learn how to save a life at an event in the town centre next month.

Brian Goodwin, who runs Pegasus Health and Safety Training, is holding free 30-minute sessions at Bishop’s Stortford Methodist Church in South Street on Wednesday, June 13. The former Army medic will teach people how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) and how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Brian launched his ‘Save a Life’ campaign last November after an elderly man suffered a fatal cardiac arrest in the Waitrose car park in August. Over the past seven months, Brian has been approaching businesses and community hubs to find out how many defibrillators are in Stortford and where they are.

He held two CPR and AED sessions in March and around 40 people attended. Brian is hoping to train even more people at the June 13 session, which runs from 9am to 5pm. Anyone who wants to learn the life-saving skills can book their 30-minute slot by emailing enquiries@pegasushs.co.uk.
