Save A Life September: Free First Aid Demonstrations In England And Wales

4 September 2014

Save A Life September

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.

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!

    Hi Yvonnet! If you'd like to email web@stjohnwales.org.uk with your details, we can set a session up for you in Amlwch. The session we'll be running is 2hours long & will teach lifesaving skills such as CPR, how to put someone into the recovery position and how to help someone who's choking. We hope to hear from you soon! :) And thank you Heidi for the mention!
