First Aid in the Shack at WADARC

by Laura M3ELV

Wednesday 11th March 2009

An excellent evening by Laura M3ELV who is a very active and qualified member of the St. John Ambulance team in the Birkenhead Division, and supports WADARC on a number of occasions during our annual Calendar. 

The first photo shows Laura taking us through the important points to remember in making an assessment of the scene (including stabilising the victim and calling the emergency services) and then making the scene safe to work in .. depending on the apparent cause of the accident.

Photos two and three show the before and after of turning a patient over into a recovery position and Laura showed the ease with which it can be done.  Thanks to Robert G8TSE who offered to help in the demonstration.
