It’s with much excitement that we announce the attendance of Chris Solomons at the 2018 National First Aid Trainers Conference.

Chris worked as an Emergency Medical Dispatcher (EMD) with the Yorkshire Ambulance Service (UK) for 20 years before moving to the patient transport service.

During the time Chris worked as an EMD, the BBC were filming a 5-year documentary called ‘Helicopter Heros’. This documentary followed the day-to-day operations of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the cases they attended.

Early one morning while the team were getting set up, Chris arrived at work feeling unwell. If you want to know what happened next, play the below video to find out…

Chris will be attending the 2018 National First Aid Trainers Conference as a Cardiac Arrest Survivor and give you a first-hand account of the events that day.
