CPR First Aid

CPR Help logoTuesday 22nd May, 2012
11am and 1pm
Lawson Mid Mountains Neighbourhood Centre

Blue Mountains Home Education Network is proud to present:

FIRST AID IN THE MOUNTAINS!

CPR HELP is very excited and proud to be able to provide your children with the opportunity to participate in this wonderful program in conjuction with BMHEN.

Research has shown that children who learn the DRSABCD concepts at a young age are better equipped to deal with an emergency situation and have a greater grasp on the competencies as teenager and adults. By teaching your children these principles we are giving them the knowledge to stay safe and help if anything does happen with their family or friends.

What will my children be doing in this workshop?

Children will be involved in learning exactly what to do in an emergency situation. In our hands on workshops they will learn about danger, how to try to get a response from an injured person, role playing how to make a 000 emergency phone call and answering questions asked by an operator, checking to see if an injured person has anything in their airway and if they are breathing and learning how to roll an injured person into the recovery position and clear the airway if needed. Children will also have hands on experience in learning how to perform CPR on our manikins.

Extra, Extra… Specifically designed just for the mountains workshops… Your children will also learn how they can implement DRSABCD in a variety of mountain specific possible incidents. Incorporated into the workshops we will look at burns (bushfires), bleeding and bites (snakes and leeches).  We will talk your children through a variety of possible scenarios and ways of dealing with each and then they will have the opportunity to role play a selection of scenarios, allowing them to put into practise what they have learnt…

Although parts of this workshop were presented in 2011, parents are encouraged to enroll their children again to refresh their memories, pick up new skills and learn all the most up to date life saving skills. Who knows when we may need it?????

There is a small covered play area for little people and parents are welcome to stay for a picnic lunch after the first workshop concludes to enjoy some social time:-)

Our facilitators will run back to back workshops on Tuesday 22nd May at Lawson Mid Mountains Centre. The first workshop will be for ages 5 – 11 yrs and the second will be for ages 12 and up. Each workshop will run for approx 1 1/2 hrs.
Workshop 1 ( 5 – 11yrs)    11am – 12.30
Workshop 2 (12yrs and up) 1pm – 2.30
Cost per child $18

Payment may be made by Direct Deposit.
