Have your say

Would you know what to do if your loved one was suffering from a heart attack?

And do you know what physically happens to someone who is having an asthma attack?

These are just some of the questions a dedicated team of first aiders will be on hand to answer in Leeds city centre tomorrow (Saturday).

Volunteers from first aid charity St John Ambulance are holding a special open day at St Andrew’s House on the Headrow throughout the day.

And YEP readers will be able to take part in a special discounted two-hour first aid course at 1pm as part of our popular First Aid For All campaign.

St John Ambulance district manager Andrew Feely said: “The questions we’ve asked here involve situations faced by people across the city every day.

“They’re not unusual but they can be serious and you can make a difference by giving first aid correctly.

“If you’re not confident you’d have taken the right action or you’ve never had first aid training, I urge you to do something about it now.

“Don’t miss this chance to equip yourself with skills that could save a life.”

The YEP has teamed up with St John Ambulance to teach basic first aid skills to help 500 readers across the city in a bid to help them become the difference between a life lost and a life saved.
