What is First Aid?
First Aid is the treatment for any injury or illness before the arrival of a professional person or paramedic.
In our day to day duties, we carry out many first aid duties without even realizing! Things like picking a child up that may have slipped over, calming a child down who may be missing his/her parents or even settling a pair of toddlers down bickering over a toy!! All fit into First Aid.
We will cover these later in the course and explain why anything you did to calm that situation is considered First Aid.
