Children ¶ July 22

junparaLife Saving Should be Part of the National Curriculum

Don’t you agree ? Every child in this country should be taught basic lifesaving skills in the last few years of primary school.

Read this article from the Daily Mail;

“A girl of 11 used her  lifesaving training to save the life of a choking toddler.
Rachel leapt into action after 20-month-old Lilly got a piece of cracker lodged in her throat.
The toddler’s terrified mother watched helplessly as she struggled to breathe and started turning blue.
But quick-thinking Rachel drew on the skills she learned from a First Aid course and rushed to Lilly’s aid.
She slapped her on the back five times before performing the manoeuvre of two abdominal thrusts.
Rachel, from Swindon, Wiltshire, said: ‘We learnt all about what to do when this sort of thing happens. It was great to be able to help my friend out.”

jp3The mother didn’t know what to do. The 11 year old girl did. The toddler survived. Happy ending. Wouldn’t it be great if all 11 year old children knew how to save someone choking. Children are prone to choking because they love to chat and eat at the same time!

Wouldn’t it also be great if all 11 year olds knew that an unconscious person needs to be put into the recovery position to save their life.

Don’t Worry, We’ll Teach Them

That’s why we came up with Junior Paramedics. We want to go to all primary schools, out of school clubs and kids evening clubs to show them. Don’t worry, we won’t scare them to death.
