Children’s First Aid – (Lakes Mini Medics)

Children should be ‘given or allowed’ the opportunity to acquire life saving skills. Not only can they help others, but it  gives them the knowledge to help keep them safe from harm.  Whether its a five year old learning how to ring the emergency services to an older child performing  CPR, all these actions can hugely benefit someone who suddenly becomes either sick or injured.

Lakes Mini Medics is an exciting concept for introducing 5 -14 year old children to ‘Essential Life Skills’.

The emphasis is teaching the children in a fun, enriching and innovative way. The workshops are also aimed at SEN, language, social and emotional development, literacy and communication. So Lakes Mini Medics can teach all children. 

The 60 -75 minute workshops will provide the children with the skills and knowledge to recognise a variety of first aid situations and how to deal with them and summons help. 

Every child will receive the Lakes Mini Medics First Aid book, certificate. So after every workshop, every pupil can take their book home and show their family and friends! So as well as introducing the pupils, Lakes Mini Medics First Aid can be introduced to their brothers, sisters, cousins and even Mum & Dad! Its mind blowing how many potential life savers Lakes Medics can create.

Why is Lakes Mini Medics different?
We use special and easy to use manikins. The Lakes Mini Medics manikins give children confidence when being shown how when to summons help, how to check if someone is breathing, how to deliver chest compressions, how to help someone who is choking, bleeding or help someone who has suffered a burn. 

This makes the workshops fun & exciting as the children love to ‘Have a Go!’ while learning very important life saving skills.

As you are probably aware, all children are capable of helping someone in an emergency situation if they are given the opportunity to learn and develop skills which they can use for the rest of their life.

The workshops cover:
* What is first aid and who can deliver first aid

* When and how to get help

* How to check if someone is responsive

* What to do if you think a casualty is not breathing

* The choking casualty

* What to do if someone is bleeding

* What to do if someone suffers a burn
