In amongst all of the bad news in the world, it is always great to hear some good news. Stories like this where ordinary people save a life always bring a smile to faces, but they also show us how important it is to learn basic first aid as you will never know when you could need to use it.
Where will I need to use First Aid?
Large events for example will often have professional event medical cover such as OMS but what if you were at a concert and someone collapsed in front of you? Would you know what to do until a medic was able to attend to the casualty?
This is why learning basic first aid skills is such an important thing for people to do. First aid covers all manner of ailments – from allergic reactions, to cuts and grazes and even heart attacks. Being prepared with these skills is really important in life and it could even make the difference to someone between life and death.
How do I find a First Aid Course?
One of the best ways to find a first aid course in your area is to do an internet search. There are lots of places that provide first aid courses, and many options that will fit around your working hours, so look around and see what options are out there. It is also good to ask people who have taken a first aid course where they did it as they may be able to recommend one to you.
