Adegbola Stresses Need For Emergency Care For Children
WORRIED by the growing need to create proper safety awareness among children, health and safety organisation, Combined Training Solutions, has moved to introduce a Life Savers Club to educate children on first aid.
Speaking in Lagos at a press conference to unveil the plan, the Chief Executive Officer of the organisation, Funmi Adegbola, stressed that the safety of children remains a global concern which must not be compromised.
“The Life Savers Club is a creative and dynamic club that will equip children between the ages of seven and 17 with the knowledge needed to render assistance in a medical emergency,” she said.
Adegbola stated that the children would be taught symptoms and treatment on various medical conditions such as asthma, stroke, heart attack, seizure, choking, severe bleeding, burns and – resuscitation (CPR).
“There won’t be any better time than now to secure our tomorrow by enrolling our children under this laudable initiative since it will end up as a preventive measure and save us the trauma of emergency,” she added.
According to her, first aid is a transferable life-saving skill that will not only benefit the children that will register for the programme, but also on everyone.
“It is a lot easier and effective to transform the minds of the kids today than for their minds to be conformed tomorrow,” Adegbola added.
Stressing the need for the initiative, the safety officer said that the present state of insecurity across the country calls for self-defence, noting that there could not be a better time to be equipped with such skills.“
