First Aid

First Aid

The Cricket Coach First Aid Appointed Person Award (CCFAAP) is a joint initiative between the English & Welsh Cricket Board (ECB) and The Swimming Teachers Association (STA).

The CCFAAP award was created to ensure that the approved person can:

  1. Take charge of the first aid arrangements and call the emergency services when required.
  2. Deal with incidents that may arise whilst coaching or playing cricket.

It also covers more general first aid which includes:

  • What to do in an emergency
  • Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation
  • First aid for the unconscious casualty
  • First aid for the wounded or bleeding
  • First aid equipment
  • Employers risk assessment of first aid needs

All cricket coaches must demonstrate the ability to carry out the listed first aid activities in a safe manner; including preparations and administering CPR.
