What if something goes wrong?

If illness or an accident happened to someone you love, would you know what to do? Learning first aid empowers you to keep them alive or comfortable until an ambulance arrives or they make it to a hospital. And scarily, right now, only 13% of Aussies know first aid, that’s just 1 in 8 of us. But we can change that.

First Aid Out & About
