STILL SHORT Men are required to bring first-aid parties in the Pittodrie, Footdee and Torry districts of Aberdeen up to strength. Volunteers from other areas are meantime carrying on there. In view of the fact, however, that members of first-aid parties have to be at their posts with all speed in the event of an air raid, it is essential for the efficient working of the organisation to have the parties composed of men living nearby. This has been possible in all but the Pittodrie, Footdee, and Torry areas. With men resident there joining the ranks of the city's first-aid volunteers the scheme will be complete. When all the volunteers have been got, arrangements will be made to recruit and train a reserve of 10 to 20 per cent, to be ready to fill vacancies occurring throughout the city. Men over twenty-five years of age of good physique are required. A call is also made for ambulance attendants in Aberdeen. They, too, will receive training in first-aid. Women as well as men are suitable for this work. People wishing to enrol in first-aid parties and as ambulance attendants are asked to do so at the National Service offices at 30 Guild Street, Aberdeen.
