First Aid and Emergency Medical Courses



First Aid and Basic Emergency Assistance (BLS)

The Encyclopedia Britannica states First Aid as measures to be taken immediately after an accident not with an idea to cure but with the idea to prevent further harm being done. It uses the available human and material resources at the site of accident to provide initial care to the victim of injury or sudden illness unless more advanced care is provided.

The three main objectives of First Aid and Basic Emergency assistance are:

  1. To preserve life

  2. To prevent worsening of the victims condition

  3. To promote recovery​​

First aid and Basic Emergency Assistance (BLS) for Children

Children are starting to be more independent and can understand basic first aid.  First Aid is being taught world-wide to children from as young as 3 years old.  Children learn about what happens to their bodies if they are hurt and how they would be treated by a grown up. They are taught things like how to dial emergency hotlines. They also learn the importance of safe eating practices and how to understand if they are in a threatened situation and then communicate that further. The session involves lots of fun activities that help instil the learning in their memory.
