Heartstart Trossachs Search & Rescue operates in partnership with the British Heart Foundation. Heartstart is an initiative to teach CPR and associated emergency life support skills to the general public. In 2013 our instructors delivered 34 classes locally and trained over 330 people.
The BHF provides insurance cover for Instructors whilst undertaking training in ELS skills or delivering Heartstart classes.
They also provide insurance cover for everybody attending a class.
To comply, TSART must ensure that its Instructors have undertaken a course of training, are competent in the skills and in the delivery of these to the public.
We have several fully qualified Instructors.
