We all know that it can be rather scary when a child injures themselves in your care but if you know exactly what to do then you have nothing to worry about. That is why anybody taking care of a child should have some knowledge of how to act in an emergency.
‘First Aid for Adults’ workshop took place here at The Yard on Saturday 11th October, 10-1pm with Early Bird First Aid Training. This was led by Emergency First Response Instructor and founder of Early Birds, Sarah Kohn.
“I have always felt passionately about the necessity of having basic first aid skills but after giving birth to my son, I realised the importance of having the confidence to care for my newborn and started concentrating on providing new parents with basic first aid skills. This led to me setting up Early Bird First Aid becoming a full time first aid provider.” Sarah Kohn.
Many things were covered such as CPR, choking, spinal injury management, serious bleeding management, shock, recovery position, burns, febrile convulsions and meningitis. The group seemed more than happy with the practical knowledge they gained at this workshop. Here are a few words from new Grandparents who attended the workshop.
“As new grandparents we thought the Early Bird CPR and First Aid course taught by Sarah Kohn was extremely valuable. We were told by our son and daughter-in-law that if we wanted to babysit for our baby grand-daughter, we HAD to take a First Aid and CPR course for babies and children. It turned out to be one of the best things we’ve done. Not only did it give us confidence to deal with possible emergencies, it was fun as well. I really think it’s valuable for parents, grandparents, siblings, and anyone who is a potential carer for babies and children. I’d highly recommend this course.” Suzie Page and Tim Shread.
Sarah is happy to be flexible and fit the course around you. If you have a group of four people or more and would like to use a specific venue for your training then she is happy to come to you. Alternatively, we would absolutely love Sarah to run another session here at The Yard so please express your interest.
