How confident are you that if it came to it, you could provide first aid to someone who needs it? Perhaps even save a life?
Samantha Adams is a first aider who saw a need to make first aid training available to people in Athlone.
She spoke to John Maytham about her first aid workshops and who she's targetting.
I started with a workshop for adults in 2014. I started seeing the outcome and realising that people really need this, but they can't always afford it.— Samantha Adams, First aid trainer
Adams says she covers a range of topics in the workshops.
I try to pick a different topic for each workshop, so it might be wounds and bleeding, CPR, drowning, seizures, strokes, heart attacks -we covered quite a lot.— Samantha Adams, First aid trainer
Last year Samantha started taking her workshops into local schools to equip young people in Cape Town with essential first aid skills.
I held a workshop at the local library and I said OK, from 8 years old and it was amazing how many primary school children came and how they responded to the workshops.— Samantha Adams, First aid trainer
