The Secondary Schools Football League took notice of what transpired in Jamaica last year when a talented footballer collapsed and died while playing a match for his school.

Now the SSFL is empowering a whole new batch of first responders who will attend matches anyhow. The league introduced a series of free CPR clinics which introduced participants to the rudiments of assisting persons who might need help at matches this season.

It applies to players and spectators alike and these first responders were put through the routine of reacting to a situation once someone falls ill on or off the pitch.

The instructor walked them through the drill, starting with a phone call to notify the health authorities that there is an emergency and then proceed to administer assistance.

It's seen as a very useful tool for as many persons as possible to have, even if they never really have to use it, but they may be able to save someone's life by early assistance until an ambulance or doctor arrives.
