Techniques that could save someone's life will be taught at a free seminar on Tuesday, January 15.

The two-hour awareness seminar will help people learn more about CPR techniques as well as showing people how to use a defibrillator.

Defibrillators were installed in town centre locations last year, thanks to an initiatives by the town council and the Friends of Daisy Bank.

This equipment is easy use, and when members of the public called 999, the ambulance service operator will stay on the telephone to assist.

The defibrillator is also designed to talk to users through the process as they use it.

It is impossible to make a mistake when using an AED (community defibrillator) – just follow the instructions being given.

The seminar starts at 2.30pm in the George Room, Subscriptions Rooms.

Although the event is free but people need to register with Stroud Town Council.
