Year 6 received training in First Aid this week from Steve from KidZco. As well as practicing CPR and other life saving techniques, the children put on bandages and explored
the equipment carried in an ambulance.
Steve talked to the children about assessing a situation using the DRAB technique; how to put someone in the recovery position; how to perform CPR on a range of dummies and how to tie different types of bandages.
Steve had brought along a fully equipped ambulance and was able to show the children how back-boards and stretchers are used to carry patients. It certainly kept a few quiet while they were restrained! Steve also used his skills as a make up artist to create some very convincing wounds on some of the children!
