CPR for Schools

Young hero from Sulęcin

2017-04-28 15:24:44

Joasia is a primary school pupil and one of the children who learn CPR and first aid within the framework of the educational programme run by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation. Children learn not only how to administer basic help, but also how to behave and whom to call for help, so when the fire broke out in her home, little Joasia knew exactly what to do - she notified the rescue services. The resolute girl quickly left home and waited for the firefighters outside. 

Unlike many adults, who would be flustered by the incident, Joasia kept her cool and knew how to call for help and how to report the incident. Little girl's bravery and speed of reaction are the best proof of the fact that children can learn how to behave in the stressful situation and they know how to utilise this knowledge to save lives. These children will grow up to be responsible members of society. 

The little hero received high praise from firefighters and rescue dispatchers, who were really impressed with her focus, speed of reaction, and levelheadedness.
