I've often thought that it would make sense to make basic first aid training compulsory for all parents. I'd certainly like to know what to do to save a life in an emergency, so it's great to hear that St John Ambulance in England and St John Wales are offering a series of free first aid demonstrations, as part of their Save A Life September campaign.
- Click here to sign up for one of the free St John first aid demonstrations in Wales
- Or click here to sign up for one of the free St John Ambulance first aid demonstrations in England.
As you'll see if you click on either of those links, these aren't first aid training courses but rather informative demonstrations which will equip you with the basic skills needed to save a life.
You could learn how to stop a friend choking or how to keep a loved one alive until an ambulance arrives.
On the St John Ambulance website you can also access some free first aid advice, play an interactive game designed to help brush up your life-saving skills, or download a free first aid app, putting life-saving advice at your fingertips.
What a totally awesome idea. I'm off to download it right away!
