Why should I know First Aid?

Knowing how to administer first aid is crucial as it aims to keep the victim safe by keeping the injuries from worsening.

Accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, including haemorrhages, trauma, burns, and poisoning that can result in loss of consciousness, seizures, and heart attacks.

In such circumstances, knowing how to administer first aid effectively, can keep a person’s vital signs stable, preventing not only death but also the risk of detrimental consequences.
