Karratha students get first aid training

All Karratha Year 12 students that graduate in 2015 will do so with vital first aid training, thanks to the Woodside-operated North West Shelf Project and St John Ambulance.


Earlier this year In May 2015, the final group of Karratha's current Year 12 students completed the Provide First Aid course at the St John Ambulance Karratha Sub-Centre.

Woodside's Karratha Gas Plant Manager Steve Trench said training young people in first aid would lead to better health outcomes in Karratha.

"This initiative, which is now in its second year, is delivered in partnership with Karratha Senior High School, St Luke's College and St John Ambulance and provides the students who participate with potentially life-saving skills," Steve said.

"The wider City of Karratha also benefits as more than 250 additional members of this community are now armed with the skills to save a life."

St John Ambulance WA North West Regional Manager Wil White thanked the North West Shelf Project for its generous support.

"St John aims to make first aid a part of everyone's life," he said.

"These students will have an excellent grounding in first aid and basic life support skills for a range of emergency situations.

"We strengthen the chain of survival and increase community resilience when more people are equipped with these vital skills."

The Karratha first aid training initiative is proudly supported by the Woodside-operated North West Shelf Project through the Karratha Education Initiative.
