FIRST AID – Do your Club members need to update their FIRST AID SKILLS ?…

Skate Victoria Affiliates AUSTRALIA WIDE


As the end of the year approaches ….

Your competing/training regime may start to reduce …. it’s a good time for Club Committees to review & check that your Club has current qualified First Aider’s at training & events.

There are many First Aid courses available out in the community. If your Club does not have current qualified First Aider’s, search for a course and make it a priority to book applicable members into a course. They often do group bookings also.

Providing initial basic First Aid to a person, may help save a person’s life in the event of a serious accident/injury/illness. It may also help reduce the severity of an injury & ensure that your Club is complying with their Duty of Care requirements when an incidence arises.

We suggest that you print out the attached DRSABCD Plan, laminate it & make it available to all members at your Club
