First Aid for Club Members

The use of external first aid provided is one of the costs that we have to cover when we put on races.

To look at reducing the cost to members are looking to change the way that we provide First Aid at our races.

We would like club members to provide volunteer services at races but to do this we need to create a cadre of First Aid qualified members. To this end we have been working with Canberra First Aid to run a course that is a mixture of self-paced online learning with a single day of training/testing to get members qualified.

The club will cover the cost of the course for members who agree to the following conditions:

  • Volunteer at two summer crit races; and
  • Volunteer at one Road Season race.

Note that riders will be paired for the crit races to allow them to still race on the night.

Can all those interested please email [email protected] before COB 13 September 2021.
