Late yesterday evening, we were informed that one of our Adult Instructors had performed first aid during the day to a man who was having a seizure.
After initially thinking the man had fallen over, SI Maynard, Detachment Commander of Belper Detachment, C Company, carried out a primary survey realising the man was having a seizure. The man was breathing so SI Maynard rang 999 for an ambulance without hesitation, explaining clearly the situation and the location of the incident.
Furthermore, SI Maynard found out the gentleman was Type 2 Diabetic and had the onset of Parkinson's Disease. SI Maynard kept the casualty comfortable with the help of an advanced practitioner who happened to be passing by. The first responder quickly arrived, to which SI Maynard handed over information regarding the man's age, condition and medical history.
A huge well done to SI Maynard, your efforts in this situation were remarkable and just goes to show the impact the Army Cadet Force can have on adult instructors and cadets.
