You are walking along and you come across a person who is collapsed. Would you know what to do initially? If you find that he is unconscious and not breathing. Would you know what to do? If he is unconscious but is breathing would you know what to do? If you answer ‘No’ to any of these then you need to consider a First Aid Course. Check out these statistics:
Only 1 in 20 people would feel knowledgeable, confident and willing to act in three scenarios – 95% of people would not.
Seven in ten adults lack the knowledge and confidence to act if someone collapsed and was unresponsive and breathing.
Nearly seven in ten people polled lack the knowledge and confidence to act if someone was bleeding heavily.
In addition to these scenarios, eight in ten adults also said they lack the knowledge and confidence to act if a baby was choking.
These statistics are very poor, and therefore there is a NEED for more people to train in First Aid. If you would like to learn or increase your first aid skills visit my website or contact me to see how I can help.
