Everyone should consider First Aid Training

One of the requirements you must meet as a volunteer with ‘’Save The Children’’ is taking a First Aid Training at least yearly. Being that I haven’t had the training before, this was an opportunity for me.

Last week Sunday, I attended my first 'First Aid' training! It was educational and fun. We also got a certificate at the end of the training/course, which I am certain would come in handy one of these days. The First Aid training lasted for 5 hours. The instructor was super helpful and patient with us and for some reason, I was laughing when others were doing the practical. When it was my turn to do a CPR on the baby mannequin, I got nervous.

There three main points we covered;

- The basics of First Aid

First aid refers to the emergency or immediate care you should provide when a person is injured or ill until full medical treatment is available. For minor conditions, first aid care may be enough. For serious problems, first aid care should be continued until more advanced care becomes available. 

- Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies, including a heart attack or near drowning, in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped.

- First Aid for illness and accident.

The instructor showed us how to use bandages and how to stop a wound from bleeding, in the case of an accident.

Before this training, the question often crossed my mind; 'what would I do if someone needs first aid and I am the only person around?' The thought of me not being able to help a person in need scares me, however, I hope that I won't find myself in a situation where I have to apply my first aid training. A person's life is placed in your hands, that is a bit scary. But all in all, at least now I know what to do if I am in the said situation. 

Taking a first aid course will teach you some life-saving skills, it will also give you the confidence you need to act, if (or when!) an accident occurs. Understanding when you should phone for an ambulance is key, as it is vitally important to deal with any life-threatening injuries before reaching for the phone. It is also extremely important to know both when and how to move someone, following an accident – and when they should be kept still. It is better to know first aid and not need it than to need first aid and not know it.

Thank you for stopping by :)
