Darren Mitchell gave a First Aid awareness talk to the children from the Boy’s/Girl’s Brigade , Barn Hill Methodist Church in Stamford, Lincolnshire.
Darren explained to the children what First Aid was, and why it was done. It was also explained when calling for the emergency services, what information to give.
The boys and girls were also taught what to do when finding a casualty who has had an accident or been injured. As a first aider we do not want to put ourselves in uneccessary danger, as we do not want to become a casualty ourselves.
Finally Darren taught the children how to put a casualty who is unconscious but breathing normally into the recovery position.
The children really threw themselves into the session with lots of enthusiasm.
