The participants gained theoretical knowledge but also practical skills in providing first aid using the correct technique, they learned how to assess the situation and ensure vital functions until the arrival of professional emergency medical services🚑 in sudden unexpected situations in which the health or life of any of us may be at risk.
First aid training was carried out in the spirit of the motto
