First Aid with Mr Hibbert

Year 4 had a very exciting morning yesterday when they were visited by Mr Hibbert and his ambulance. The children learnt all about when they should call an ambulance, the different categories of 999 call, and what happens if they ring 999. They then learnt about what to do if someone is choking, before they went outside up to the ambulance, where they learnt all about DRS ABC, practiced their CPR and bandaging skills and saw how paramedics monitor a patient’s heart using an ECG machine. Finally the children role played an emergency scenario, where they practised what to do before the ambulance arrived, and saw what the paramedics would do to treat a patient.
