First Aid For Kids
(scroll this section to read all)



There are 3 main aims of First Aid:

  • To Preserve Life
  • To Stop and more harm occurring
  • To aid recovery

Even children from round about the ages of 10 onwards can learn basic First Aid skills that can really help in an emergency. Schools in some countries have it on their National Curriculum but sadly some don't.

If it is not on your school curriculum you can always ask your school or guardians if you can be trained assuming if you are old enough. Always make sure you go with a trusted Guardian and the course is run by a major, reputable company.

Some things you might learn (course dependent) are:

  • How to call the emergency services
  • What the recovery position is
  • How to do an rapid initial survey of the situation
  • How to perform rescue breaths
  • CPR
  • How to handle choking
  • Care for fractures
  • Checking an minimising bleeding

Training is fun and many children have been given a confidence boost by knowing they have the skills to help people!

There is no way a small article like this can provide detailed advice on First Aid Skills but there are so many great resources available online and through real First Aid training organisations that we know you won't be stuck.
