C.F. First Aid Training and Manual Handling

Occupational First Aid Cardiac First Response Child Care First Aid & New Mothers Emergency & Basic First Aid First Aid Responder (FAR) Manual Handling

C.F. First Aid Training - First Aid is a knowledge that all should have. It can be as simple as putting on a plaster to keeping someone alive by giving CPR. I provide training for Fetac Level 5 Occupational First Aid which is a 3 day course and refresher training which is just 1 day. Cardiac First Response training, Defibrillator Training and Emergency First Aid training. If you are a childminder, a new mum or someone training in childcare, I provide you with the knowledge you need incase of any unforeseen circumstances. All of my certificates are valid for 2 years. Prices vary. The fact is, there is a much higher chance of having to do First Aid or CPR on someone you know or love.

Mission: First Aid can be the difference between life and death!

‘Good morning, I'm calling from the HSE track and trace service. 😷
According to our system, you are likely to have been in close proximity to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. This means that you now need to self-isolate for 7 days and take a COVID-19 test.'🤒
'OK. Can you tell me who that person was?'
'I'm not able to tell you that. 🤐
That is confidential information.'
'Right. Um... so ....'
'But you do need to be tested within the next 72 hours. So can I just get the best mailing address so that we can send a kit to you?'
'Ok (gives address)'
'Thank you - and I just need to take a payment card so that we can finalize this and send the kit to you.'
'Sorry - a payment card? I thought this was all free?'
'No - I'm afraid not!
There is a one-off fee of €50 for the kit and test results. Could you read off the long card number for me, please, when you're ready.'
'No - that's not right. 🤑
This is part of the HSE so there's no charge.'
'I'm afraid there is. Can you give me the card number please - this is very important, and there are penalties for not complying.'🤑
Puts the phone down.
This is how scammers work. And vulnerable people will fall for it.”
Don't fall for it...! ☎️
Please COPY and PASTE😡

The Weeverfish is found in all parts of the Irish coast but only in sandy areas, usually in warm shallow waters in the hour before and after low tide. They are difficult to see because they spend most of their time buried under the sand. The have sharp spines containing venom on their dorsal fin.

> Standing on a Weeverfish results in immediate intense, burning pain.
> The pain is most intense in the first 2 hours and can result in swelling, numbness and warmth.
> Seek assistance from a lifeguard, if available.
> Submerge the affected limb or wound in hot water, as hot as can be tolerated for up to 90 minutes or until pain is easing.
> As the sting can result in numbness, immerse the unaffected limb too, as this may prevent inadvertent scalding.
> Cold applications may worsen the discomfort.
> Paracetamol can be considered to relieve pain.
> The puncture site should be examined and embedded spines removed.
> Tetanus and/or antibiotics may be required.
> Seek medical attention from a doctor, if necessary.
Call 01 8092166 if you have been stung by a Weeverfish.

Waterford City Fire Service

White watch attended a serious and distressing incident in the city yesterday.
What makes incidents like this more distressing is the need to capture the incident as we operate at the scene and share it extensively on social media.
The incident then becomes distressing to some of those that receive it and watch it.
We as Emergency Services have services available to debrief and offer critical incident stress management after an incident like this but those that receive it on social media do not.
Please do not capture Emergency Services and share the footage on social media while they operate at distressing scenes, you do not know the persons circumstances and do not know the outcome of the incident.
Footage of this incident was widely shared on social media before we even left the scene, this is not right and it must stop.

This is the DEATH MASK of a young woman who drowned in the River Seine in the 1880s. As was customary in those days, her corpse was put on display in the Paris mortuary, in the hope that someone might recognize her and claim her body. The pathologist on duty became entranced by the girl with the enigmatic half-smile, and so he commissioned a plaster cast made of her face. This mask was replicated many times over. She became known as "L'Inconnue de la Seine,” or “The Unknown Woman of the Seine.”
In 1955, a toymaker named Asmund Laerdal created what we now know as the CPR doll. Asmund wanted his mannequin to have a natural appearance. Remembering a mask on the wall of his grandparents' house many years earlier, he decided that the L'Inconnue de la Seine would become the face of Resusci Anne - the CPR doll. So you see, this anonymous woman who drowned in the 19th century is responsible for saving many, many lives the world over. It is said that she has the most kissed face of all time. I hope you enjoyed this little #histmed tale! #cpr #histsci #FOTD #themoreyouknow #believeitornot #deathmask

A musician played the violin while surgeons operated on her brain to remove a tumour at King’s College hospital in London. The medical team asked Dagmar Turner, 53, to play the instrument to ensure parts of the brain that control delicate hand movements and coordination were not damaged during the millimetre-precise surgery. Turner was diagnosed in 2013 with a brain tumour after suffering a seizure during a symphony.
