Why become a first aider?

Simple Skills Save Lives!

Definition of first aid in English Oxford Dictionary:
Help given to a sick or injured person until full medical treatment is available

By learning basic skills you could help save a life. You could help someone in distress or someone that is injured.

You will not be expected to perform miracles, you will not be expected to perform surgery on the side of a road, you will however have the skill set to be able to keep control of a situation until help arrives. Just simply by holding someone’s hand and having the communication skills to talk to them, keep them warm and put them in a recovery position could save their life!

Do you know how to control an airway?

What would you do if someone passed out in front of you on a night out?

By attending a 6 hour first aid course every 3 years (that’s 2 hours per year out of 8766) you will have the skills and knowledge to make a difference!?

Whether you become a first aider because you have been asked to by your employer in order for them to fulfil their legal obligation or you have an interest in becoming qualified rest assured the life skill that you will learn is as important as learning to walk.

You will be taught how to:

  • perform Cardio Pulmonary resuscitation (CPR),
  • how to deal with someone who is choking,
  • what to look for if someone is having a stroke,
  • what the best position is for a person suffering a heart attack
  • how to deal with a venal and arterial bleed and more….
