The Rural Fire Service Cudgegong District delivers approximately 40 courses a year for its volunteer members, these courses range from mainstream courses such as Bush Fire Fighter, advanced firefighting skills and Crew Leader Courses to specialist courses such as chainsaw use, advanced resuscitation techniques and Breathing Apparatus, in fact there are over 60 courses the RFS volunteers have access to.
Most weekends there is a course being delivered to our volunteers in the district.
This weekend the Cudgegong District conducted a First Aid course for 16 volunteers at the Cudgegong Fire Control Centre.
This course is run by qualified volunteer instructors.
The First Aid Program provides members with the level of competency needed to provide first aid to members of the public and RFS.
It consists of CPR and Defibrillator use and how to deal with such incidents as head injuries, bleeding, fractures, bites and stings, poisoning and heat illness.”
