Red Cross is a leading provider of First Aid globally and in Australia, Red Cross College is the only truly national provider of First Aid and Workplace Compliance training.

Unfortunately only a very small portion of Australians are First Aid trained, less than 5% in fact.

Research shows while most people are willing to help out in a First Aid emergency, more than two thirds of people just don't know what do. Lack of or incorrect treatment can lead to increased severity of injuries which may have otherwise been avoidable with simple First Aid treatment.

First Aid animations

Get the First Aid conversation started with our hilarious two-part series First Aid animations.

The quirky animations are slightly removed from reality, feature likable characters and general First Aid scenarios which have a global appeal - making First Aid a hot topic!

Black and white line illustrations, gibberish language and strong sound effects make it relevant regardless of age, language, cultural background or occupation.
