Family First Aid

Helpful ways to keep your family safer.

Trying to help an injured or unwell child can be frightening, especially if you are unsure about what to do. There are first aid courses available which have been specially developed for managing first aid for kids.

Click here for details of the Order of St Johns Child First Aid course.

Whether it’s a scrape, a sting, or a sore throat, having the right solution on hand can help you soothe almost any ‘ouch’ that affects your child. It’s worth keeping a pack of Pamol® at home and when travelling, so you can be sure that relief from pain and fever is never far away.

What’s more, creating a family friendly first aid kit doesn’t need to be painful. First aid kits can be purchased fully assembled from the Order of St John’s or from your local pharmacy. You may want to use this check list to create or add to your kit.

It’s also a good idea to keep carry a first aid kit at home with you, in the car, or carry while camping or tramping. Pamol’s handy convenience pack is just the right size to take with you.
