First Aid expert and Emergency Life Support Team Director Andy Sullivan
My career started as an operational fire-fighter, with hands on First Aid experience, in the Kent Fire Brigade. I served with Kent Fire Brigade for 17 years; and qualified as an instructor. In my last few years of service I became the Manager of First Aid training for the Brigade. Whilst in this role I worked closely with the Ambulance and Air Ambulance services.
I changed careers to become a Resuscitation Officer in the NHS, developing new skills in teaching and providing Advanced Life Support. A new role which gave me extensive knowledge and experience in advanced care.
With 20 years of experience and knowledge under my belt, I developed Emergency Life Support Team in 2005, of which I am proud to be the Director.
With a team of dedicated instuctors, who all have an Emergency Service background, we can offer a First Aid course that is delivered from real life experience.
I know from experience that First Aid truly makes the difference between life and death and I believe that everybody, young and old, should have at least the basic skills to save a life.
Best Wishes and thank you for visiting the website.
