Life saving skills

Knowing what to do when you're faced with an emergency is really important. It could mean the difference between life and death. An emergency can happen anywhere and at any time - at home, in the playground, in the street or at work. By learning basic life saving skills, if the worst happens, you could step in and give someone the best possible chance of survival.
