Yes - thanks for this. I've been listening about it on Radio 4 today.

St. John's Ambulance/Red Cross have just started a new campaign to raise awareness and save thousands of deaths a year that could other wise be avoided if people knew and applied simple first aid.

They want the booklet to go out to as many people as possible.

Have sent for mine.

Thanks 19f!

Great idea. I already carry around a little first aid pouch I got out of poundland, this will be really useful to keep in it.

Thanks for the link, ordered mine not too long ago. I'm a lifeguard so am always being tested on my first aid skills at training sessions, this will come in handy when I'm swotting up before the sessions!

Default Funny first aid awareness

Hi, for all who are interested in raising awareness of first aid training, please have a look at a 1 minute film I made at uni to help raise awareness of the need for first aid training, it is very funny if you have a spare minute check it out, it will make you smile!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUUtcnJ00mc

Smiling is contagious you catch it like the flu 。◕‿◕。
when someone smiled at me today i started smiling too, i passed around the corner & someone saw my grin & when he smiled i realized i'd passed it on to him, so, if you feel a smile begin don't leave it undetected, let's start an epidemic quick & get the world infected.

Pity they didn't offer as a pdf download. I know they will want to build their database of potential donors but they are nevertheless wasting resources on print and posting if people are happy to download (and perhaps donate as well).

A lot of people think St Johns ambulance is the only provider of first aid courses in the UK

In reality there are over 1000 HSE approved first aid training organisations and most of them are more cost effective than St Johns, such as the organisation i work for, and here is my shameless plug gkfirstaidtraining
