British Red Cross Training – Katie knew what to do, would you?
Thanks to her first aid training, Katie Jones knew what to do when someone collapsed in the bingo club she works at.
Katie did her best to remain calm and asked her colleague, Leanne, to call for an ambulance.
“As Maureen was unresponsive and not breathing, I remembered from my first aid course that I needed to give her chest compressions,” Katie said.
Shortly after the emergency services arrived and took over.
Maureen was transferred to hospital, where she had surgery. She then returned home and has since made a full recovery.
Our first aid at work courses give you the skills and confidence to respond to a range of emergencies, including how to help someone who is unresponsive and not breathing.
