Module K- First Aid
This module aims to ensure that ESYLs have the understanding and skills to take action in an emergency situation. Training in emergency response is becoming an essential requirement for many jobs and courses. These skills are invaluable for ESYLs. That’s why training in emergency aid is part of the Scheme. Given the wide availability of training courses in first and emergency aid, ESYLs complete this module by attending a recognised training course.
The objectives of this module are that of the course undertaken, in this case Scouts First Response.
The First Response course focuses on three main areas:
- Life support: The principles of first aid and initial response (arriving and managing an incident), emergency life support, CPR (including technique for children and an explanation of what AED is and how to use it), management of an unconscious casualty (child and adult), and choking.
- Trauma and injury: Shock, bleeding, fractures (ambulance imminent and non-imminent) and sprains, head injuries, dental incidents, and burns.
- Major illnesses: Asthma, anaphylaxis, heart attack, stroke, seizures, diabetes, sepsis and meningitis.
