It’s November, and it’s the time of year for firework events. Who doesn’t love a bonfire and the spectacle of a fantastic display of fireworks? They can look beautiful in the sky, but burns can be a risk, especially for small children who might not realise that sparklers can still be hot long after the sparkles have disappeared.
Here are our top 5 tips for treating burns in children.
At First Response First Aid we teach participants on our First Aid courses how to assess any emergency situation, how to work out what help is needed and what to do straight away to help the injured person.
We also deliver specialist Paediatric First Aid courses which are ideal for those who work (or intend to work) in a childcare setting. Our courses fulfil Ofsted’s first aid requirements for early years (EYFS) teachers, nursery workers and childminders.
Would you feel able to cope in an emergency, either at home or at work? If not, why not attend one of our regular first aid courses? They run at various venues across the West Midlands every week. We offer high quality, professional, certified training at affordable prices. Please call us to chat about which course is right for you, we are here to help.
