First Aid Resource


CEH has produced a first aid resource in plain English and Arabic, based on St John’s Ambulance DRSABCD Action Plan. CEH worked with community members and a graphic designer to adapt the language and images of the St John’s first aid message for Arabic readers.
This resource outlines how to assess if someone has a life-threatening condition and immediate first aid actions to take. This resource is best used by people who have done a First Aid course but and can also be used to inform the general public. We suggest printing it out for display in public areas such as housing estates, medical and community centres.
