Workshop Details

First aid demonstration

Anyone may suddenly be called on to provide first aid in an incident and a timely response and the knowledge of what to do is often what determines the difference between life and death.

This workshop covers cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED), choking on food or a foreign body and the resuscitation position for an unconscious person.
