Just one in five people know what to do in an emergency* and over two thirds of people in Wales lack the confidence to help someone experiencing a cardiac arrest.**
We need your help to change this by learning first aid and becoming a potential lifesaver. That's why each September we offer local communities across Wales the opportunity to join one of our free 2-hour training sessions to learn simple techniques which could help to save someone’s life.
Our first aid awareness sessions give people the knowledge and confidence to deal with an emergency situation. The session covers the following scenarios:
- How to manage an incident
- How to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
- Treating an unresponsive casualty
- What to do if someone is choking
- How to treat severe bleeding
We believe no one should die because they needed first aid and didn’t receive it and that first aid should be available for everyone whenever and wherever they need it.
Empower yourself and your local community by sparing just two hours to learn lifesaving first aid skills this September.
