We learnt crucial first aid skills alongside UK Military School so that we are equipped with life-saving knowledge in case we ever had to use them. Firstly, it was important to learn about what to include in a first-aid box and where these are located around school should we ever need to use one. Next, we learnt how to place someone in the recovery position; use CPR and role played what to say during a call for an ambulance. We really enjoyed the workshop and feel confident in helping a casualty in the future.
"I really loved the first aid training and it has inspired me to join St John's Ambulance because I know that I may need some of these skills in the job that I need to do." Nathan
"I didn't realise how tense a situation must be when you are giving first aid. The person is completely relying on you - especially when giving CPR. I now feel more confident knowing that I can help my family, friends or others if they need my help." Joe
