Have you ever been sent on a course by your employer and thought, “I don’t want to be here”.
This happens a lot in First Aid.
Think of the situation, you are sat at home watching TV with your partner. All of a sudden you hear a funny noise, you look at your partner and they are struggling for breath, sweating, changing colour, complaining of pain and struggling to talk to you. What do you do?
First Aiders know what to do!!!
Call 999 and ask for an Ambulance! Give them your location, your partners details, tell them what is happening. Don’t hang up the phone!! They will help you through it.
