First aid lessons on Little Cayman

44 Little Cayman residents have been either fully certified or recertified in first aid and life saving techniques thanks to a multi–agency training session held at the Little Cayman Beach Resort.

Organised by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, the course saw participants trained in CPR, AED (defibrillator training) and first aid, under the instruction of EMT Brian Burchell from Cayman Brac and Little Cayman nurse, Mary-Ellen Cutts.

‘In a small island community where medical resources are limited it is important that we have as many people as possible trained in life saving CPR and general first aid skills,’ said PC Darren Coles. ‘I am really pleased that so many people turned out. As the community officer on the Island, I continue to strive to make Little Cayman an even safer place to live and am delighted that the community came together on this venture.’

The course was held over a three day period at the Little Cayman Beach Resort.

The Little Cayman Beach Resort provided their venue free of charge.
