“They said to me ‘you just saved your son’s life’. It was amazing to hear those words.
“Worst case scenario he could have not been here, or he may have suffered brain damage if I wasn’t giving the oxygen to him.”
Eight years on, Haydn is a healthy, growing boy thanks to his mum’s quick thinking and her first aid training.
“You never think this situation will happen to you but it does,” Morgan said.
“$50 is the tiniest price to pay to save your child’s life.”
Tiny Tots First Aid course
St John WA is making it easier than ever for parents and parents-to-be to learn these vital skills through the Tiny Tots First Aid course.
“Accidents happen, that’s why they’re called accidents,” St John WA Sales Manager David Anderson said.
“The St John WA Tiny Tots First Aid course will equip parents, grandparents and carers with the skills that they need to be able to react appropriately and potentially save a child’s life.”.
The specialised 3.5 hour training session will teach participants the skills to perform CPR on infants, children and adults, as well as manage bleeding, choking, burns, asthma, anaphylaxis and more - all for only $50. The short course is available in both regional and metro areas across WA.
“Having the knowledge and skills to be able to act in an emergency situation, especially when a child is involved, can make all the difference,” David said.
“Quality first aid training means that you will walk away with the confidence to act in an emergency.
“Regarding Tiny Tots First Aid, children are not just smaller adults.
“They are susceptible to different risks that require special consideration in the event of an incident. The St John WA Tiny Tots First Aid course focuses on the most common of these.”.
