2014 Teaching Emergency Response Readiness to Primary Student

Training young people in first aid and CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) is widely recognized as a practical and cost-effective way of increasing community capacity to respond in emergency situations. A trained and confident bystander can save lives. However, training must be age and content-appropriate. For young people it must be fun and engaging. This seminar describes a project in Queensland to assess the emergency response readiness (ERR) of 12 year olds using age-appropriate measures before and after a one day training program conducted by surf lifesaving instructors. The project may serve as a model or template for schools in Hong Kong and mainland China.
