The Cook Islands Red Cross First Aid Instructor Pua Arthur, engages with participants from Ngatangiia and Matavera. 21021945.

Ngatangiia netball members and Matavera puna representatives participated in the Red Cross First Aid course held earlier this week.

Thirty participants - including children kept motivated and engaged by the dynamic training presentation of First Aid instructor Pua Arthur.

Learning First Aid is a valuable tool, using skills that can be used to assist emergency medical situations for your family and your community.

Knowing how to perform CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator) can potentially help save a life.

The empowering training session delivered by Arthur inspired  participants to focus, listen and learn more.

Amy Kainuku, who attended the course said: “I’ve attended many First Aid courses, this was definitely the best one.”

The training was organised by Emergency Management Cook Islands (EMCI) staff, with funding from the New Zealand - National Emergency Management Agencies (NZ NEMA), to support and build capacity in the puna’s on Rarotonga.
