Staff from our offices recently went on their 1st aid refresher training with the lovely people at St John’s ambulance in Ossett. We had a fun day getting to grips with bandages, learning some new techniques and refreshing our memory of previously learnt ones.
But whilst it was a fun day, it was also a vitally important one. 1st aid training saves lives – fact. We all hope that the training is something that we will never have to put into practice, but we also know that doing something to help before the medical professionals arrive can make the difference.
St John’s offer a free helpful 1st app that can be used by anyone. More details can be found here http://www.sja.org.uk/sja/first-aid-advice/free-mobile-first-aid-app.aspx
