First Aid for children

Accidents are waiting to happen…Annually more than 1.5 million accidents happen in and around the home. As a parent or carer you are often the first one to deal with an accident. That’s why we organise a First Aid for babies and young children course every month.

Evening course

It’s easier to deal with a situation when you know what you can and absolutely cannot do. That’s why we offer a First Aid for children evening course for parents and carers of babies and young children. This course is given in Dutch.

A PowerPoint presentation will discuss various life-threatening situations, illnesses and minor injuries. A qualified Orange Cross First Aid Instructor leads the course using the latest guidelines.

Topics covered during the evening:

  • Loss of consciousness, such as a concussion
  • Problems breathing (choking)
  • Illnesses
  • External injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Shock
  • Burns
  • Poisoning
  • Broken bones
  • Sprains and dislocations
  • Eye injuries
  • Hypothermia and heat stroke
  • Minor injuries
