ADRA Local Police officers have been learning essential first-aid skills and how to use a defibrillator in Civil Protection-run training days.
In the most recent sessions the officers practiced cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR.
Civil Protection personnel took them through all the first assistance basics to guarantee they can act effectively in an emergency situation.
Adra Mayor Manuel Cortes, accompanied by Local Police Chief Inspector Maria Trinidad Perez, Guardia Civil lieutenant Isacio Peinado and local councillors, went to see how the officers were getting on.
Cortes described these kinds of workshops as “very important” to ensure police officers are “always up-to-date and have full knowledge of each and every existing mechanism for intervening in an emergency.”
