Why do parents spend their hard earned money lavishing their offspring with gifts and toys and every safety feature they can possibly afford such as stair gates, car seats, crash helmets and fire guards without thinking once about their ability to perform first aid should they need to?
For less than £50.00 you could purchase a lifetime’s subscription to The First Aid Cabinet, an on line first aid resource that could help you save the lives of your children, family and friends should an accident occur. The resource is available 24/7 to you and your family and provides vital training and information on first aid and childhood ailments to equip you with the expertise to deal with any medical emergency involving babies and young children.
Imagine a family BBQ at home and you suddenly witness an accident involving a small child. The child has fallen and is motionless, the air is still and quiet, time stands still. You rush over and gather the child in your arms and they are limp and pale…
Would you know what to do?
You are not alone. Shockingly 81% of parents in the UK have never been on a first aid course and would not be equipped to deal with this situation. Coupled with the fact that emergency help is on average, at least 8 minutes away (even longer in the rush hour) and there is always the danger that the situation will worsen whilst you are waiting for professional help to arrive.
Don’t chance it and be a statistic, sign up to The First Aid Cabinet on www.firstaidonchildren.co.uk or call us on 01908 612413
