On Tuesday the 17th Jen from the Red Cross came in to Room 9 to teach us about first aid and about the DRS ABCs
D – danger checking for dangers is the first step in any first aid situation.
R – response and checking if they are breathing or moving
S – send for help
A – check their airways are clear
B – breathing by feeling if air is coming out and watching their chest rise up and down
C – circulation by checking that their body has blood circulating through.
We learnt how to put someone in the recovery position and how to help someone if they are choking and no noise is coming out.
