If you live in South Essex you can’t help but hear about Lazarus Training at the moment! We were recently covering in the local papers, [including the Evening Echo], after some members of our team had to perform CPR in our workplace. On 4th March we were presented with cupcakes by Southend Radio as part of their “Treat your team” promotion and we are also featured in an article in the March edition of “Your Essex” the free local guide.
Earlier this year Martin [who works next door to our Leigh on Sea training office] was taken ill at work. He was having a heart attack and went into cardiac arrest [where the heart stops pumping blood]. Luckily Sam from our admin team was nearby and with some help for other great people she was able to summon help, perform CPR and control the situation until the ambulance arrived. We’re glad to say that Martin has made a good recovery and the story was featured in the Evening Echo [pictured]. It’s great to be able to point people on our first aid courses to a real life example of a workplace emergency where basic first aid has saved a life.
From print to the airwaves, there is no escape from Lazarus Training in the media! Our local radio station Southend Radio has a feature in which they ‘award” a box of cupcakes to a local company to “Treat your team” and earlier this week it was us! Samantha submitted our details, but Claire and Alison were the lucky recipients when the cupcakes arrived. And as you can see they started disappearing so quickly we couldn’t even get a photo of the complete box!
As part of this feature Claire even took to the air and chatted for a few minutes about the first aid and fire safety training Lazarus Training delivers.
Those of you living in Essex may also see us in the “Your Essex” magazine as Martin [mentioned above] describes the events of that fateful day at our first aid training venue in South Essex.
You might have also seen some of our team and some of equipment in TV programmes in the last few months, with guest appearances on BBC’s “Trust me I’m a Doctor” and our equipment being given a bit of a rough time in BBC’s Top Gear recently.
