Transport minister John Hayes commits to save lives and join the commercial drivers who have achieved the DFA first responder course.
Tracey Worth Inst of Couriers was with David Higginbottom who showcased Driver First Assist, DFA as the solution to saving lives roadside. A commercial driver is likely first to arrive at a road traffic accident (RTA). An injured person in an RTA will die in around four minutes from a blocked airway, an ambulance arrival is likely 8 mins.
David Higginbottom detailed training to save those lives, training for commercial drivers. Dealing with blocked airways could save half the lives lost in RTAs in the UK. The full house event held in the Commons was keynote-addressed by Transport Minister, John Hayes.
