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.
Assemble First Aid Kits
One for your family, another to give to visitors at your church.
Check the church's first aid kit.
A Kit List:
• 20 Adhesive bandages, various sizes. • 1 5" x 9" sterile dressing. • 1 Roll - gauze bandage. • 2 Triangular bandages. • 2 3 x 3 sterile gauze pads. • 2 4 x 4 sterile gauze pads. • 1 Roll 3" cohesive bandage. • 2 Germicidal hand wipes or waterless alcohol-based hand sanitizer. • 6 Antiseptic wipes. • 2 Pair large medical grade non-latex gloves. • 1 roll of Adhesive tape, 2" width. • 3-4 packets or 1 small tube of Anti-bacterial ointment
Create a Social Service Info Center in your church
Have students create and decorate a "Good Samaritan Information Center" of local social services available in your community.
We have a church member that is also an ambulance attendant., Mary came, in uniform, told the Good Samaritan story and had the kids act it out in front of the big group, she talked about how she get's to be a Good Samaritan in her job, She talked about what she did and how she has to treat everyone kindly that needs help no matter what they look like. She talked about basic first aid what to do if you had a nose bleed, or applying pressure to a wound, when to call 911 and when not to, what to do if you were caught on fire? (stop drop and roll and the kids did it), she talked about what to do if you ever got lost, she talked about how to be a Good Samaritan on the playground when someone is hurt or feeling left out, then we took a field trip in our church to the AED on the wall and she talked about what the AED (defibrillator) was and if an adult ever told you to get it, this is where you would find it, She drove an ambulance squad and we all got to go inside (tight fit) and she showed us what she did and how things worked and even ran the siren. It was a hit! The kids were really engaged and asking all kinds of questions. Now the kids will follow up in the kitchen the following week with making heart cookies to give to Mary to take back to her co-workers along with thank you notes. We have tried to make this unit a real hands-on unit for the kids to realize that they too can be a "good Samaritan" ..
