Many of us are now taught First-Aid as a requirement for work, and it is law to have a qualified first-aider in any office, factory or workspace that has more than five persons.
But as parents we should learn first-aid in case something happens to our children at home, on way to and from school or at the park.
Basic and advanced courses are cheap and regularly run by both the St. John Ambulance and the Red Cross. (see buttons below)
Everyone should learn basic first-aid, it could save a life !
