Sthoee Lifeguards Dublin Blood Night This Sunday

Blood night is this Sunday, a positively ghoulish night of first aid and casualty simulation. 

How to treat a vampire bite? Attacked by a zombie? Difference between a lifeguards emergency first aid kit and a vampire emergency kit?

important lifesaving skills like zombie invasion planning, different vampire bites, triage and injury assessment - werewolf or zombie?, pĂșca or ghoul?

We've gallons of blood, wads of fake flesh, fake injuries, and a cast straight from the hammer house of horror. 

Dress to unimpress, it's a night for old clothes...... crucifixes, silver bullets and wooden stakes.

Do not be late. Do be afraid, be very afraid

Blood Night Sunday October 21st

spare a thought for vampires, zombies, ghosts and ghouls

it's the night when the undead take over sthoee, CPR on a skeleton and more blood than you can imagine

first aid on the night of the living dead - learn how to blood up and simulate all sort of injuries, then learn to treat the injuries.

(and you get to learn casualty simulation ahead of Halloween)

wear old clothes - dress to unimpress

it's not a night for the squeamish
