First Aid @ the Arches

26239802_2021210648161847_8312376397695915265_nIn the New Year, we had Darren from 1staidfire come in and he did some Pediatric First Aid training with local residents.26230862_2021210564828522_6287215668465232935_n

The course comprised of two days of training. The first day comprised of a question and answer workshop as well as talking about personal experiences. We talked about what should be included in a basic first aid kit and used our knowledge to see what we knew! The outcomes were very impressive.

The second day was hands-on practical with the use of a dummy to practice CPR as well as a simulated choking scenario. We also administered bandages as well as learning about the different medical equipment we may come across when working with adults and children. This included EPI-pens, asthma inhalers and diabetic insulin pens, just to name a few.
