National Youth Emergency Care
The National Youth Emergency Care competitions, held at Eden Park, are one of the biggest parts of the four-day National Youth Festival.
This year it was held on Sunday 14 April and brought together the top 72 contestants 12 teams and individuals from around the country to compete for Champion Team, Champion Individual and Champion Region.
The cadets are tested with realistic scenarios in trauma, medical and CPR putting together all the skills they have learnt and been practicing over the last six months.
First Aid is the corner stone of the St John Youth Programme and equips our young people with skills not only to save lives but builds confidence along with leadership and communication skills.
