Be prepared: First Aid Training course gave 28 youth workers the opportunity to improve and gain practical knowledge in one of the most important areas of youth work – safety and first aid. This knowledge is necessary in everyday work with young people, when small injuries or even more serious accidents can happen at any time. 

The aim of the project was to increase the competences of 28 youth workers in the field of first aid. Participating organizations received trained first aid volunteers. This knowledge will be important in their work with young people in the organization, as well as in the implementation of other events and projects.

Participants got:
– theoretical knowledge and practical skills in providing first aid using the right techniques, being able to assess the situation and ensure vital functions until the arrival of a professional emergency medical service in sudden unexpected situations in which the health or life of any of us may be endangered;
– knowledge to justify the importance of providing first aid in the emergency care system in the event of sudden lifethreatening and health-threatening events;
– the acquisition of practicable knowledge and skills in dealing with sudden life and serious health-threatening events of an accidental and /or non-accidental nature;
– a positive attitude towards providing first aid and preventing sudden threats to life and health. We want to get rid of any uncertainty in the spirit of the motto “the only bad first aid is none”.
