What Is First Aid
First Aid as the words suggest is the care given to a casualty before professional help is required. This help can literally mean the difference between life and death.
The aims of First Aid are:
To preserve life
To prevent the worsening of any injuries
To promote recovery
Why do we need First Aid and more importantly the correct products.
