One of the most important life skills that a scout will learn is First Aid.
What is First Aid?
First Aid is the first help given to the victim of an accident. There are 3 aims:
- Stop life-threatening dangers
- Keep the victim safe from further harm
- Get proper medical help
Why should you know First Aid?
- A Scout on a camp falls against a rock. He shouts out for help. His head is bleeding and his arm is bent at a strange angle.
- Walking home from school, you hear a squeal of tyres and turn to see a car knock someone off her bicycle. She is lying still, unconscious, with blood spurting from her leg and she is not breathing.
- A child complains that he is sick. You see a box of rat poison spilt on the floor and you think he might have eaten some.
