MEFAS, providing services to the Community since 1968
MEFAS was set up in 1968 by former members of Kingston Civil Defence Corp which was being disbanded. Those volunters decided that the skills they learnt should not be lost. MEFAS founder members were well experienced in First Aid and Search and Rescue techniques involving compromised buildings.
MEFAS continued practicing Civil Defence techniques and specialised teaching first aid to the public and, later became a registered charity.
Current members are continuing developing and enhancing their own First Aid skills and others in the borough. Besides teaching public First Aid, trainers are qualified to teach HSE and OfSted compliant courses to Level 3 including those recently introduced by the Resusitation Council.
MEFAS aims to be the premier First Aid training organisation in New Malden and surrounding areas and provides a range of courses at its own premises or at clients. Please see below for further details.
