James Russell

Hey there, welcome aboard! I’m James, the co-captain of the Dundee First Aid Training ship.

So, a bit about me: I’ve been knee-deep in bandages and CPR since 2005, officially donning the instructor hat in 2015. Started off as a lifeguard, making sure everyone stayed afloat, then decided teaching folks first aid was my calling.

In 2019, I bravely traded my lifeguard whistle for a firefighter’s helmet, now fighting fires instead of waves with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

Then, in a stroke of genius (or madness), Chris and I teamed up to launch Dundee First Aid Training in 2022. Turns out, we’re not half bad at it, helping Dundonians stay safe and sound.

Now, when I’m not saving lives or teaching others how to, you’ll find me chasing after a football or reluctantly dragging myself to the gym. Oh, and at home, I’ve got Carly, my partner in crime, and our tornado of a daughter, Ruby (aka Captain Chaos). And let’s not forget about Ben, my grown-up sidekick!

Here’s a little nugget of wisdom before I go: Remember, it’s always better to be prepared and never have to use it. So, why wait? Get yourself booked in and let’s have a laugh while we learn to save the day!
