The Importance of Learning First Aid

It is important to know First Aid because we never know what happens next in life. We never know what unsuspected situations can happen even though we don’t wan to think about it and might try to ignore it. If it happens or when it happens it’s better to be prepared so that you can help your loved ones, a co-worker or a stranger. By learning First Aid you can help  yourself and others that may be injured. The chances of someone surviving an illness, accident or injury can be greatly improved if someone uses First Aid knowledge to help them. Few weeks ago my friend saved a life of a young child. She was looking after a nine month old child when it suddenly stopped breathing and collapsed on the floor. Fourtunatly my friend knows First Aid and was able to save life that day. Thanks to her knowledge the child is healthy and fine today but if she had not known how to react this little child would not be alive. This is why it’s so important for each and everyone of us to learn First Aid. You might be able save lives one day. Everyone should own a First Aid Kit in their car and home because we never know when we might need it.

    Thank you for this reminder. I carry first aid kits with me every day (sometimes I need them, but not as often as when my kids were smaller) but I would highly recommend it to every mum! We’re much relaxter if we have thought through some critical situations and the best way to do it is in a group. Getting a first aid certificate is also sometimes necessary for organising children’s activities etc. and on schooltrips, parties etc.

    At its most basic, first aid is the initial assistance given to a victim of injury or illness. Comprised of relatively simple techniques that can be performed with rudimentary equipment, first aid is usually carried out by a layperson until professional medical assistance arrives.
