First aid training for children

25.03.2008

In March 2008 the SEB Charity Fund and the training centre of Tallinn Ambulance organised first aid training for children in all of our partner shelters (in Tallinn, Tartu, Narva, Sillamäe and Pärnu.

The kids learned how to call for help and administer first aid when an accident happens: they were shown resuscitation method, what to do in the event of bleeding and burns, how to behave when someone inhales a foreign substance, falls off a high object, etc. All children practiced resuscitation and dressed wounds.

Afterwards, the children were shown an ambulance and they learnt why an ambulance sometimes has flashing lights and a siren on when it drives, what equipment it carries and how it is used. Going for a drive in an ambulance was definitely the most exciting thing for the kids – everyone took the opportunity to go. It was pretty cool to turn on the flashing lights. The children were particularly pleased when they all got certificates confirming their skills after the training was over.
