First Aid

Thinking about your child being in distress is not a pleasant experience for any parent. However, If your child was not breathing, choking or drowning, would you know what to do?

Nine out of ten parents in the UK don’t know the basic first aid skills that could help them to save their child’s life, and only two out of every ten adults think that they could perform resuscitation if their child has stopped breathing.

Nationally, 33% of parents say they or somewhere that their child visits has a pond and almost half of these ponds are exposed and unfenced. Also, 22% of parents have suffered the distress of watching their child choke and ‘didn’t know what to do’.

Because of this the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS UK) developed a workshop called the Save a Baby’s Life program. This valuable 90-minute workshop teaches you how to administer Life Support to a child who is not breathing, or who is choking, and what to do in a drowning incident.

The course is designed to introduce anyone who cares for a child, may they be parents, grandparents, guardians, friends, babysitters or even older teenage siblings to some effective emergency action skills.

In this two hour workshop you will learn how to:

  • Recognise signs of life and what to do in an emergency
  • Perform CPR on babies and young children
  • Perform first aid on a child that is choking
  • and finally, what to do in the event of drowning
