Article 24: We have the right to information to keep us safe and well.

Today we have been learning about how to take care of an injured casualty. We first assessed the situation and checked for any dangers before approaching the casualty and checking for a response. When we didn’t receive a response, we had to call for help.

When we knew the casualty was breathing, we learned how to place a casualty in the recovery position.

When the casualty wasn’t breathing, we phoned for an ambulance and administered chest presses to the unconscious casualty.

Finally, we looked at our school’s defibrillator and learned how simple it is to use as it talks to us and explains in simple steps what to do.
