Cdt Turner was nominated for her award by their Detachment Commander for their quick thinking in providing First Aid in an incident she was involved in last December. While ice-skating at the local indoor ice rink with a group of friends, one of her friends slipped and injured their leg. Isabella immediately went into action and assessed her friend’s injury and realised that it was serious enough for the workplace First Aider to be made aware, as well as requiring an Ambulance. Isabella remained with her friend reassuring them until their parent arrived to take them away in the ambulance, where it was established in hospital they broke their ankle.
Elgin Detachment Commander Sergeant Major Instructor Graeme Wells (31) said; “Isabella could have just let the workplace First Aider know, but I am proud that she used her initiative and put the First Aid Training that our cadets are taught to use. Her actions were worth a nomination for a First Aid award and glad to see that ACCT have recognised this. She is now the sixth cadet from Elgin in the past 12 months who has been recognised for their First Aid actions.”
Cdt Turner was presented with her certificates by her Detachment Commander on Wednesday 10 May at the Cadet Centre in Elgin.
