Do you have first aid skills?

    I think it should be taught in schools, if you ever get the chance please take a course, you may save a life some day.

    I saved a life yesterday...admittedly it didn't involve my first aid skills...I just lifted the worm from the pavement to the grass...but that worm still wriggles because of me...

        Indeed I do. Fortunately DR.ABC was not required on 2 occassions. Two people had passed out in town but they were fine n dandy! First aid is taught in UK schools.

            Yes.  I still remember training from Boy Scout days, plus several CPR courses and AED training.

              Yes, I have the certificate to prove it. However, after witnessing cpr done on a real person, it does make me think that realistically I am probably not fit enough to keep it up for as long or hard as it needs to be done.

                Yes, I do. I have held several jobs where those skills were required. I have passed the CPR course, know how to clear throats, handle an epileptic fit, bleeding, high fever, and several other situations, including shock. However, a lot of what I know is what to do while waiting for an ambulance to arrive.
