NOT exactly first aid to be done at home... But a great way of keeping a young child out of the operating theatre!

New ambulance standards for dispatch of an ambulance are being introduced. This should mean that the RIGHT asset is dispatched to the casualty. When calling the emergency service, you will now be asked...

Is the patient breathing?
Is the patient conscious?
Tell me what's happened.

For life-threatening issues the ambulance will be dispatched immediately, but for other issues the controller will now have 4 minutes (previously 1 min) to decide what the best response will be... So, for example, next time a call is made for a patient who has had a stroke, an ambulance will be dispatched instead of a paramedic on a bike!

See the attached, which has some short video clips to see the new procedures:

This seems to be a great use of the sometimes slightly controversial drones. Especially as ambulance despatch procedures have also just (on 13th July) changed to focus on those needing CPR!

Are you off on holiday soon? Hopefully this information will not be needed! - but don't forget that 112 is recognized & used to contact the emergency services in around 100 countries worldwide - Including all members of the EU (who sponsored the project).
To check the full list, or to find out more, see:

Did you know?? That some AED cabinets can contain VERY useful BLS (Basic Life Support) tools.... Like...
Tough cut scissors, Razors, Face shields & Gloves... & non essential, but useful wipes too...
1st Aid Responders also uses the IPAD AED as our preferred training device.

Fight your instincts, not the water. Everyone who falls unexpectedly into cold water wants to follow the same instinct: to swim hard and to fight the cold water. But when people fight it, the chances are, that they lose.
If you find yourself unexpectedly in the water, do as little as possible by floating.

This is worth a look. It is also why 1st Aid Responders includes infant & child CPR on our courses
