Holiday staff taught CPR

I don’t usually do press-releasey type posts but I thought this one was about such a good idea which more holiday companies should follow I wanted to share it.

Zenith holidays, which runs a variety of mainly activity-based holidays, now has all its resort staff take a Heartstart Course with the British Heart Foundation which teaches people how to keep someone alive until professional help arrives. They don’t just learn CPR but also how to deal with choking and bleeding – things which can happen anywhere. Isn’t that reassuring? Why don’t more holiday companies do this – especially those which offer childcare?

And just in case you haven’t seen it yet – here’s the brilliant Vinnie Jones CPR video which shows how compressions should be done to the beat of the Bee Gees’ Staying’ Alive.

    I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like some of these comments appear as if they are written by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you list of the complete urls of your social networking sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  2. I love it when folks get together and share views.
    Great website, keep it up!

  3. It’s remarkable to go to see this website and reading the views of all colleagues about this paragraph, while I am also zealous of getting know-how.
