One of the biggest fears for many parents (and grandparents) is finding themselves having to deal with an accident or medical emergency involving their child.
It’s awful to think about being in a situation like this and not knowing what to do.
Obviously there are precautions you can take to keep your children safe at home and when you’re out and about. But if the worst happens, would you know what to do? Our First Aid for Parents training can help you.
This years World First Aid Day saw an outcry for all children to be taught first aid and to add it to the curriculum. This year the First Aid Responder of the Year was a child called Karen from Iceland who performed CPR on her mother who was having an epileptic seizure on a bus. With the right knowledge anyone can save a life, anywhere. Most of the time children save lives using first aid knowledge they have learnt from doing extra curricular activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, Cubs and Rainbows. If every child was taught basic first aid it would increase awareness and the amount of lives saved dramatically.
