Hundreds taught CPR at Cromer Carnival

Hundreds of people learnt to save a life at Cromer Carnival.

Ambulance staff and volunteers gathered at the carnival field in Runton Road on Wednesday (16th August) to talk to visitors about the work of EEAST.

Staff and community first responders from Overstrand and Cromer taught more than 400 people cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) as part of the event before the carnival procession.

Visitors were also able to explore inside an ambulance and Daisy, EEAST’s vintage ambulance.

Diane Chan, EEAST Senior Locality Manager for Central Norfolk, said: “It was a very successful day and everyone had a great time.

Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who gave up their time to talk about their work and to teach people lifesaving skills.”
