First Aid

First aid is the core activity of St John Saint Lucia where it is provided to commercial organisations, other charities, communities and to schools. Their objective is to create a future generation that will have first aid knowledge and skills to reduce the current lack of proper care to the injured and ill which is leading to further medical complications and loss of lives.

First Aid and Emergency Training 

Basic principles, such as knowing to use an adhesive bandage or applying direct pressure on a bleed, are often acquired passively through life experiences. To provide effective, life-saving first aid interventions require instruction and practical training. St John Saint Lucia focus on educating the public on some of these very critical issues. They believe that it is absolutely unacceptable that so many people die needlessly – because no one could give them first aid when they needed it.
