A recent survey of 2000 adults found that nearly two thirds of the UK population are not First Aid trained. In Birmingham, only 37% of adults are trained in First Aid.
The main explanation that was given for not assisting in an emergency situation was not knowing what to do (30%), whilst 7% of respondents said that they would be scared for their own safety.
Being First Aid trained means that you can cope in an emergency with calmness, clarity and confidence. Staying cool, calm and collected will mean that you can offer support to the injured person and help prevent them from being frightened, which has been found to lessen pain extremely well.
