Someone collapses at an event. How do the first aiders find out about it? How does the first team on scene ask for more equipment or request an ambulance? Radio communication is vital to the job we do.

We will cover the basics of radio protocol and the equipment we will use. Then we will simulate a treatment centre at a busy event, with teams dispatched by radio. Try out being a Radio Controller or a Treatment Centre Manager. Be on a foot team and try to figure out where your patient is located. A great chance to get active and take a break from revision.
