MIDLANDS Air Ambulance Charity is hosting its annual Airbase Open Day on Sunday, September 15, giving hundreds of people the chance to see behind the scenes and the airbase and learn lifesaving CPR.

The charity, which operates an emergency air ambulance service across six counties including Worcestershire, is inviting people along to its Strensham Airbase. Visitors can enjoy a fun day out with the chance to learn this vital skill.

Jim Hancox, aircrew team leader and critical care paramedic with Midlands Air Ambulance Charity says: "We attend an incident where a patient has suffered a cardiac arrest almost every day, and often CPR can be the difference between life and death. It's a simple skill which anyone can learn, so they can improve the chances of survival if their loved ones are ever in cardiac arrest."

The Open Day will take place from 10am – 4pm and will feature live emergency incident demonstrations, children's activities and plenty of chances to learn CPR from one of the charity's aircrew.

The event is free to attend and will help to raise lifesaving funds for the charity which relies solely on donations from the general public.
