Last week Chloe and I were on a Two Day Paediatric Emergency First Aid Course. The course was led by the brilliant Billy from Totalcourses.
The course covered the topics:
- Head injuries
- Child resuscitation
- Recovery position
- Treatment for bleeding, shock and burns
- Treatment for sprains, strains and fractures
- Asthma, diabetes and seizures
- Allergic reactions and Epipens
These are all very important skills which are useful both in everyday life as well as on camp. Billy has a very ‘hands on’ approach to teaching which made the course not only informative, but also very fun.
Later in the year, in the lead up to our big summer camps, we’ll put on First Aid courses for a number of our wonderful staff to ensure that we have a number of qualified First Aiders on hand at every Activ Camp!
