Responders presented with Baby Anne doll
Deepings First Responders have a new training aid that could help save the lives of young children.
The training aid is a Baby Anne CPR doll which has been donated to the First Responders group by the Rotary Club of the Deepings.
The Baby Anne manikin was developed to provide effective training in infant CPR.
Among its many features it offers realistic chest compressions and chest rise to allow trainees to learn proper CPR techniques, as well as how to clear obstructed airways.
The Baby Anne was formally presented to the First Responders by Rotary president Alan Kendrick and rotarian John Lavery. It is already proving a very useful training resource.
Helen Bembridge, co-ordinator for Deepings First Responders said: “We have never had this model before and she will be very useful to the group.
“Already we have had an interesting and informative training session with her and she has been taken out to advise a group of mothers how to deal with a choking child.”
