Who is your First Aid Person?

Recently I had to redo my first aid certificate training course as it had lapsed and it is part of my job to have this current as I attend on the day events I organise for my clients.

It made me think, have you thought about who would do first aid on you, your partner or one of your guests if one of them was to collapse on your wedding day? 

"First Aid knowledge is invaluable for both you as the individual and for your community. It enables you to assist persons who become injured in the event of an accident or emergency situation until help arrives." Sourced by Australias First Aid

I bet, you had not even given this a seconds thought, but you need too.

Especially if you have decided to have your wedding at a location that is not close to a hospital. As you know locations around the Southwest, can be at least a 30+ minute drive to a hospital or wait for an ambulance to arrive. If you don't have someone to apply first aid/ CPR the person will die. Sorry to give you the hard truth on the subject but this could happen.

So right now I want you to go and add these couple of items to your wedding planning -

1. Download the St John Responder app - this app is amazing 

It points your exact location can become difficult in an emergency situation. The St John First Responder App sends your GPS coordinates to the operator when you call Triple 000 for an ambulance, speeding up the time it takes to confirm your location and dispatch an ambulance.

Over 200,000 Western Australians have downloaded the app which also contains a number of other resources, including:

First aid instruction guides – helping you to treat a range of injuries and illnesses.
Defibrillator (AED) locator - showing all the defibrillator locations near you.
Upload the location of new defibrillator (AED) locations that aren't currently appearing on the app.
Locate nearest medical centres and emergency departments - including live ED waiting time information.
Patient transport services information.
Your first aid course information and refresher reminder notices
First aid tips and special offers - keeping you up to date with handy first aid information.

2. Find out is there anyone attending your wedding day that holds a first aid certificate and if need be they would be able to do CPR on a person. 

3. Organise a first aid case of supplies incase someone needs a bandage or something that may assist the person giving first aid to someone until the ambulance arrives. 

I always feel if you have something in place your likely hood of it happening sets the universes balance, then if you have nothing in place things like this happen.

Happy wedding planning.
