Support for the 999 Appeal launched by CSALS has been received from Brett Martin Ltd, based at Staveley. 

CSALS – Community Save a Life Scheme – is a charity devoted to promoting and facilitating first aid training, offering a free online course in association with Virtual College.

Those who provide support for the organisation’s 999 Appeal receive a practical first aid training session among the benefits provided. 

A session which featured the use of defibrillators was recently delivered at Brett Martin’s Staveley site.

Commenting on the link-up with CSALS, Brett Martin’s senior HR advisor, Kim Williams, said: “Brett Martin are proud to be a sponsor of CSALS’ 999 Appeal. 

“Not only are we sponsoring such a worthy cause, we are ensuring our employees are de-fib ready should they ever find themselves in a situation where a defibrillator is required.

“The general feedback from our employees who attended the course was that before the training they were scared to use a defibrillator, not anymore.

“The training was informative, practical and fun. Great work, CSALS!”

Debra Johnson, community facilitator for CSALS, said: “We would like to thank Brett Martin for their valued support.

“We were delighted with the feedback received from those who took part in the session and look forward to delivering further first aid training at Brett Martin, ensuring that more of their employees are equipped with the knowledge to save a life.”
