The Kids First Aid Story

Kids First Aid was launched in Australia in 2007. Now we are launching in Canada after training over 18,000 Australian parents!

Today, all of our presenters Canada-wide are trained and experienced paramedics.

Unfortunately numerous emergency situations they have attended, many children have failed to receive basic first aid treatment during the crucial first few minutes of an emergency.

Too often parents don't have the basic first aid knowledge to help their children. Instead, they watch and wait (often in a state of panic) for help to arrive. Seeing so many parents left helpless hit home hard for our founders, who are parents themselves

The format is simple. A one-off, 3 hour session, identifying the 10 most common emergency situations that Paramedics see, that involve children. The Kids FIRST Aid team continue to believe in the strength that Paramedics are the experts in emergency care and by integrating their own experiences, makes the session interesting, relevant, memorable & entertaining (words never previously used to describe first aid!!).

Initially Kids First Aid Paramedics would visit the homes of parents with groups of ten or more.

Today, we have a team of Kids FIRST Aid Paramedics/Presenters nationally and host regular “Open” sessions that anyone can book and attend. In addition we tailor make sessions for corporate organizations and present at their location.

As years have passed, the courses have been continually updated in line with first aid protocol. The response to Kids First Aid has far exceeded our founders wildest expectations. Plus also received hundreds of incredible testimonials from parents who have used the skills they had learnt from our sessions. Kids First Aid now provides engaging, informative and valuable presentations across the country at a location near you.

Thank you for the overwhelming response and helping our contribution to the health and safety of children become a reality.
