First Aid Training

Activity Description:

I am looking for expressions of interest from club members who wish to participate in a First Aid Training course run at Talooge. The course will be run by Paul Morris (Brindabella First Aid Services) Paul has worked as an Ambulance Paramedic with NSW Ambulance for almost 20 years which has given him a broad knowledge base of injury treatment and management. The course he delivers is very much based on the practical reality of patient management. Unit of competency HLTAID003 – Provide First Aid The flagship of the Brindabella First Aid training curriculum, this course covers a broad range of topics to enable participants to confidently manage emergency situations and provide a first aid response to a casualty. It is suitable to both people in workplaces and members of the public who want training in first aid. This course covers topics including: • Abdominal injuries • Allergic reaction • Anaphylaxis • Basic care of a wound • Bleeding control • Burns • Cardiac conditions, including chest pain • Choking and airway obstruction • Crush injuries • Diabetes • Dislocations • Drowning • Envenomation • Environmental impact, including hypothermia, hyperthermia, dehydration and heat stroke • Eye and ear injuries • Fractures • Febrile convulsions • Head, neck and spinal injuries • Minor skin injuries • Needle stick injuries • Poisoning and toxic substances • Respiratory distress, including asthma • Seizures, including epilepsy • Shock • Soft tissue injuries, including strains and, sprains • Stroke • Unconsciousness The costs for this course is $130 each but if we have more than 20 members the costs will be $110 each.

End result, I have some minor abrasions to my shins, all else is ok. Yesterday for the first aid course, the facilitator’s presentation included videos that relied on an internet connection. I set up the long range antenna on the truck to create a wifi hotspot. For maximum signal strength, I moved the truck next to the club house training room. During the afternoon, due to the sun, the curtains were closed. When training finished, it was dark and I went out to pack everything up. My eyes hadn’t adjusted to the dark, there was no light from the training room, and I didn’t have a torch with me. In the dark, I tripped over the rock positioned to protect the access cover to I think a water fixture. If the cover wasn’t broken before, you now know how it was broken. I acknowledge my contribution to my fall. With people being what we are, someone else may have a similar experience (and perhaps worse result) given how many people park adjacent that area. I know we can’t address every trip hazard on the property, but one near the club house poses greater risk. I am happy to contribute solar lights to provide some light near this rock (and elsewhere) to be part of the solution and not just the problem. Another thought is to paint it with luminous paint. For your awareness and consideration. On a brighter note – thank you to everyone involved in organising the first aid training. Andrea and I found it very informative and useful. I relied on it to do some self-diagnosis! Cheers Alex +61 417 579 066
