Top three tips for emergency first aid

First Aid for babies and children.

Our Baby and Children First Aid course can help parents save lives. You can book now to be prepared and achieve better outcomes in all kinds of emergency situations. In the meantime, here’s a snapshot of the first aid tips you’ll learn about in our online course.

Stay calm.

All emergencies are different and so are children's reactions. From terror to disassociation, there is no normal response. Remaining calm and reassuring them may help through stressful times. Distracting their attention is another technique you can use.

Recognise, remove or control.

By recognising the hazards that can cause dangers, you can remove or control them to make your home a safer place for children and infants.

An example is recognising the cleaning product you use is poisonous. You can remove this hazard by replacing this product with a non-toxic variety or take control by keeping it in a place where they can’t get access.

Make the changes immediately.

Children are not protected until they’re separated from the hazard. You’ll feel more relaxed when the children are safe and the hazards have been isolated.
