Smile Free First Aid Audio Advice

Official MSE Insert:

Sussex ambulance has come up with a clever way of helping in case of a medical emergency. Click the link and it has a series of 7 downloads you can put on your Ipod/mp3 music player to listen to on your journey. Make sure you listen to them every so often and if you find yourself in a situation you'll be prepared. This obviously isn't a replacement for ringing 999 but it may help

Now back to the original post....


-----


Brought to you by the South East Coast Ambulance Service

Here you will find first aid advice (which you can download and store on your mp3 player) on how to deal with common, and potentially serious situations.

Tried following this link but the files would not play or download when I tried, may need to be tried again later to check that files are still available

wow

I never even knew this made it in the tip

I'm sure I still have all the files
and since they "...encourage users to distribute them..." I'll see what I can do about hosting them somewhere as soon as I get the chance/find somewhere.

Have you managed to find another source for these links?

I'm interested because I've got my first aid 2 day refresher next week and would like to do some swatting.

After asking the question in my previous post I went to have a look and found the following link to the same information. I have downloaded one of the files with no problems.
