What is First Aid?


First aid is promptly helping people who are suddenly sick (illnesses) or hurt (injuries or body damage). For example, first aid is used at accidents to help an injured person until they receive medical treatment (help by doctorsnurses or ambulances). First aid is also used to help people who suddenly become sick, until help arrives or they can be taken to medical care.

Basic First Aid

Do NOT use CPR  on any clients or staff if you are not trained. If a client becomes anxious or panics, keep calm and reassure the client that this is normal.  Get the client a glass of water and talk to them in a calm manor.
