Cadet Instructor receives Commendation at St John’s Everyday Heroes Awards

An Adult Volunteer with the Army Cadet Force (ACF) has been highly commended for her heroic actions to save her baby’s life.


Chloe Cook, a Probationary Instructor from Llangefni Detachment of Clwyd and Gwynedd ACF, was recognised for her quick thinking at St John’s Everyday Heroes Awards in the Hero Parent of the Year category.


Television presented and best selling author Katie Piper hosted the event on 28 September, where a record nine nominations from the ACF and Combined Cadet Force were celebrated by the star studded audience at the London Hilton Bankside.


Chloe said: “I’m so honoured to be here and be a finalist, adding I’m so strong minded about First Aid and I’m glad to see all these people feel the same.”


Her daughter was only 12 months old when she started struggling with severe health issues. Thankfully, Chloe used the First Aid skills she learned during her time as a Cadet to avoid a very serious situation.


After Chloe rung the hospital for an emergency appointment, her daughter began fitting and then suddenly became unresponsive. Chloe kept calm and carried out CPR on her daughter, who then regained consciousness and recovered.


SMI Louise Baker-Morris, Clwyd and Gwynedd ACF’s First Aid Training Officer, said: “Chloe is an inspirational First Aider and fully justified her award.”
