The majority of the Niue Police staff are now officially certified in First Aid according to Chief of Police Tim Wilson.
In a press release issued by the Niue Police on Tuesday this week stated that “the Niue Police Department is dedicated to providing regular training” to the Police and NDMO staff.
As part of their regular weekly training, the Niue Health Department provided refresher first aid training that included CPR and an Automatic External Defibrillator or AED training.
According to the press release, AEDs are lifesaving medical devices that allow the general public with very little training and/or experience to provide an electrical shock to people who require it to save their lives.
The Police were also given an automatic external defibrillator.
The Niue Police thanks the health department for their assistance with the training and the newly installed AED.
