Safer sports fields programme trains more first aiders

2018-03-13 06:01

People’s Post freelance sport photographer, Rashied Isaacs, continued with his “safer sports fields” project over the weekend.

Isaacs has teamed up with an accredited first aid company, Dunnmore Training, to equip community sport coaches with life-saving first aid skills.

People’s Post reported on the project last year (“Safety no walk in the park”, 14 February 2017), describing how Isaacs had noticed the lack of emergency planning, especially first aid assistance, on the various playing fields in the community whilst working for the newspaper over the past decade.

The project has delivered training to over 100 coaches in a three-year period and he encourages other sporting bodies to take the initiative forward.
