A great idea gleaned from a previous set of posts:
Conduct a Good Samaritan First Aid Workshop
Children learn how to take care of themselves and the friends should something happen to them. This could include medical first aid, knowing who to call, when to call 911, how to handle dangerous people or dangerous situations.
For local resources:
- Contact your local Red Cross.
- Contact your teachers/principles, as they often "know who" in the community comes in to teach these skills.
- Talk to any family physicians in your congregation or neighborhood.
- One for your family, another to give to visitors at your church.
- Check the church's first aid kit.
