We never know when we’ll need first aid, and hopefully, some of us will never be in a situation where we must use it. But it’s always best to be prepared!
We spoke to Siobhan Butler from First Aid for Everyone and asked her a few questions about baby & child first aid:
“I think everyone can learn some basic First Aid skills. Even if this is as simple as learning how to call 112 / 999 for an ambulance. Prevention is better than cure so safety proofing your home in advance is a great place to start.”
“First Aid can be daunting but as the saying goes ” it is better to know First Aid and not need it, than to need it and not know”. By doing a small baby /child First Aid class that we at First Aid For Everyone offer, you will be equipped with simple skills to deal with choking, CPR, burns and other topics,
This is done via zoom from the comfort of your own home.
We hope to equip you with confidence.”
“The answer to this is NO. It is never too late to learn or refresh your existing skills. We as instructors also have to refresh every 2 years due to various changes. It keeps it fresh in your head and hopefully as a bystander you would be willing to step forward to help.”
