On the 19th June, 2019, A first Aid Training on CPR/Choking/Recovery position was organised by the Rotary Club of Seremban and the event was held in Seremban Prima from 11.00am until 7.00pm.
The event began with a bang! A warm up session conducted by PRO A3 FITNESS took the stage. The energy was palpable from the moment the PRO A3 FITNESS Team step on stage. The participants ranging from students, teenagers to the “young at heart”, were absorbed in the music. They moved flawlessly to the pulsating rhythm of songs such as ‘Let’s get loud’ by JLO.
After the warm up session ended, we took a group photo, something that I always look forward to…The memories and moments to cherish in life. Right after that, the St. John Ambulance’s took over the program. We were briefed with techniques and ways and the team also demonstrated the CPR/Choking and Recovery Position. As a participant we had the opportunity to try and practice those techniques as well. We were guided and taught the right and proper way to handle and demonstrate the techniques. A short question and answer session was conducted briefly by the team. It was indeed a very interesting and informative Training Program.
I believe that one of life’s important skill is First Aid Skills. When someone choked, suffered a heart attack, or drowned-giving First Aid immediately makes a difference between life and death. After we had completed the basic course, we were awarded a certificate and a goodie bag.
Do you know that if someone stops breathing, he/she only has 4 to 10 minutes before he/she becomes brain-dead? Chances are that the ambulance will not come in time. Therefore, it is very important that CPR is administrated immediately.
Human normally do not think of calamity until it strikes!But emergency does happen and it’s best to be prepared. You would want to know that if your love ones are in danger, you will have the necessary skills to save them.
