How to save a life – Train in First Aid!

Would you know how to save a life? Thousands of people die each year in the UK due to accidents. Many of these deaths can be prevented if First Aid is given before Emergency Services arive at the scene. The main causes of injury or death are:

  1. Anaphylaxis (or anaphylactic shock)
  2. Bleeding
  3. Burns and Scalds
  4. Choking
  5. Drowning
  6. Electric Shock
  7. Fractures
  8. Heart Attack
  9. Poisoning
  10. Shock
  11. Stroke
