This is #MartinWalsh and on Friday/ Saturday of last week I completed a renewal of my #PaediatriFirstAid with him.
The reason I decided to do this post is because 1) First Aid is a truly #LifeSaving #Skill for anyone. 2) Martin Walsh is an #ExcellentInstructor. His #passion for #FirstAid in obvious. His knowledge & confidence teaching the subject is endless. He's packed out with #CommonSense, with good humour with it! Plus, he is incredibly #flexible & will fit around you. For the past two #renewals (every 3 years) he has come to my house and moved things in his schedule around to fit in with me & I think that's the type of #service that deserves a huge #Shoutout! #Gratitude! 🙏🏾😃 His website is: www.homeandawaytraining.co.uk
If you need/ decide you want to do some #FirstAid training I would highly recommend him. ⭐️
Interestingly they're endeavouring to make First Aid as accessible as possible so people feel confident to use it. I am now able to use a #defibrillator too; it's surprisingly straightforward. One very interesting thing he said is if you have to give #CPR to a child v adult; in Usual case scenario, a child is like a car that's run out of petrol so you need to do a full minute of CPR first. The adult is like a car that's broken down, so you need to call #999 first. In both cases 999 must be called; It's when you do it that's important & makes the difference. 🌟
Also, I would highly recommend to anyone living in a country who hasn't yet learnt the lingo to do a first aid course. Martin recalled a story of a woman doing one of his courses because her brother-in-law died because the only person that spoke English who was present was his 5 year old son who didn't know his address. It was a death that would have been preventable. So people; teach your #children their address - it could be #LifeSaving. 🙏🏾💫
Also, one lady caught in the #ManchesterBombing saved her own life because she'd done a First Aid course a few weeks earlier. 🙏🏾😇🙏🏾
First Aid really is a Vital & Life Saving Skill & you never know who's life you could save. ⭐️🙏🏾😇🙏🏾🥇🙏🏾💫🙏🏾🌟
