Yesterday we had a visit from David the Paramedic. Primary 345 have been learning all about what to do in an emergency and Miss Bremner very kindly organised for a real life First Responder to come in and talk to us.
David came and spoke to all of the classes. He told us all about why it is important that we know basic first aid skills and how they could save someone’s life. He taught us who to phone if we come across someone unconscious, how to check if a person is breathing and how to put them into the recovery position whilst we wait on an ambulance to come. He also taught us how to perform CPR if the person is not breathing. I think we all agreed that CPR is hard work!
