Saint John's Ambulance run two first aid courses during the school holidays in association with Braintree District Council/Greenfields Housing Association.

Essential First Aid

This course is designed to give students the essential skills they might need when dealing with emergency situations involving adults. They will cover coping in an emergency, CPR, heart attacks as well as additional skills such as how to bandage a casualty. They will hopefully go away at the end of the course confident with being able to give first aid to anyone.

The children will take part in a PowerPoint presentation with both theory and practical elements. They will go away with the knowledge of how to help in an emergency situation.  

First Aid, First Action
