Blaze stars set to learn lifesaving skills

The Genting Casino Coventry Blaze players and Head Coach are going back to the classroom on Tuesday next week to learn a set of crucially important skills.

Teaming up with a partner, The Midlands Training Company UK Ltd. (MTC), Jordan Pietrus, Brett Robinson, Ryan Dingle and Danny Stewart will participate in a Paediatric First Aid Awareness Course where they will learn invaluable, lifesaving skills.

The representatives from Blaze, who will be joined by their wives too, all have young children and the knowledge of what to do in an emergency is extremely important.

The Paediatric First Aid Awareness course covers all manner of situations including choking, blood loss, convulsions and more. In an emergency situation it can take 8 minutes for an ambulance to arrive so for anybody, having these essential skills really could save a life.

Captain Jordan Pietrus said, “As a father of a little girl, I think it suddenly becomes so much more important to have a basic understanding of these lifesaving skills. When you become a parent and you are responsible for this tiny person who relies on you, you just want to do everything in your power to keep them safe. I hope there would never be a circumstance when I would need to put any of our learning into practice, however having the opportunity to learn these skills will give me additional peace of mind that I would know what to do should the worst ever happen. We’re all really looking forward to the course.”

MTC Director Paul Ingram, commented, ‘’The Midlands Training Company UK Ltd. are proud to be working with the Coventry Blaze, showcasing one of  our most popular courses. It demonstrates the importance of first aid awareness for everyone and teaches invaluable lifesaving skills.  We have been working with the local community and the course has been delivered to primary school children, support staff as well as parents and carers of children at local day nurseries in Coventry and across the Midlands.”
