Would you know what to do if someone as choking? What if your neighbour was having a heart attack?
At Aragon Housing Association we are very grateful to the British Red Cross for producing a handy First Aid leaflet which you may find very useful to have around the home.
It is packed with hints on how you could use everyday items like frozen peas, cling film and even beer to help someone in the event of an accident or injury.
Running alongside the leaflets are a series of videos which also contain useful information. You can watch these at redcross.org.uk/everydayfirstaid .
The Red Cross has worked closely with the tenants’ organisation TPAS to produce the leaflet in the hope people will take a few minutes to remind themselves what to do in the event of an emergency.
All the information is presented in clear, simple steps with diagrams and pictures and tells readers what to do in the event of, among other things, someone having a heart attack, a stroke, being burned or being unconscious.
Why not take a few minutes to have a look through – it may save a life.
