It is so important to understand the benefits for First Aid Training in our day to day life, the statistics are unbelievable. 150,000 people a year could be given a chance to live if more people knew first aid.
Thousands of people are dying each year in situations where first aid could have made the difference. This includes nearly 900 people who choke to death, 2,500 who asphyxiate from a blocked airway and 29,000 who die from heart attacks.
First aid could make a dramatic difference in these situations, either through direct intervention, in the case of choking, or by recognising life-threatening signs, such as a heart attack, and caring for someone until medical help arrives.
Some research by SJA revealed that:
Nearly two-thirds of people (59%) wouldn’t feel confident enough to try to save a life
A quarter (24%) would do nothing and wait for an ambulance to arrive or hope that a passer-by knows first aid.
Too little too late…….
We at Healthsafe Training will be running offers every month in differant areas and levels of skills around first aid in an attempt to try and encourage people to do what they can, when they can.
Anything is better than nothing. Let’s reduce those statistics through teaching and spreading the word, we can save lives throughout Manchester and Warrington.
