First Aid Saves Lives First@Scene is a St John Ambulance NT project initiative to help reduce road accident deaths and serious injury. It aims to provide users with quality first aid awareness training and practical advice about attending to the scene of an accident. Anyone can provide assistance at a road crash, but the better skilled in First Aid the rescuer is, the more effective and beneficial the support offered will be. Many people happen across a road accident because they are in one of the vehicles involved or are in a passing vehicle. First Aid has always been a vital part of an effective emergency response and St John Ambulance NT is proud to train and certify over 10,000 Territorians each year, in the delivery of first aid. It is our long term vision to see all learner drivers in the Northern Territory trained in First Aid as part of getting their drivers license. First@Scene provides practical awareness training, in an interactive manner, where the user learns from both text and pictorial demonstrations of technique and approaches to first aid skills, in addition to providing opportunities to revise principles learnt throughout the course. Following the presentation of course content, the user is prompted to answer a series of revision questions, testing their comprehension of first aid skills taught. First@Scene takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Upon successful completion of the training course, the user is sent a certificate of completion by St John Ambulance NT. Topics include: -What is First Aid -Duty of Care -Infection Control -Checking for danger -Checking for a response -Sending for help -Clear the airway -Checking for breathing -Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation -Defibrillation -Wounds and Bleeding -External Bleeding -Internal Bleeding Disclaimer: Completion of the First@Scene online first aid course does not provide the same level of training or practical assessment received by completing a full first aid course. St John Ambulance Australia (NT) recommends that everyone complete a full First Aid Course.
