Aster Kids introduces students of the Gulf Indian School to Emergency First Aid Training via the Aster Scouts Initiative

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 23 February 2017:  Aster Kids organized the very first ‘Aster Scouts’ session on Wednesday, 22nd February at Aster IVF and Women Clinic. The event was aimed at educating school going students about the basics of emergency first aid care. This particular session, being the first of many to come, was attended by 22 students, from grades 7 to 9, of the Gulf Indian School, Dubai. The students took part in the interactive training sessions, demonstrative safety measures and an open quiz.

The primary goals of the Aster Scouts initiative are to, firstly, imbue school going children with the ability and knowledge to identify a first aid situation. And secondly, to provide them with first aid training, given by a certified instructor, so that they can take prompt action in the advent of a first aid emergency. 

The Aster Scouts initiative was established to teach the school going children of Dubai, the basics of emergency first aid response, until the arrival of Emergency Services to their location. This was the first ever Aster Scouts Session to take place, with a view on enlisting more schools to send their pupils for subsequent events. The training was carried out by Mr. Roshlal, a Certified First Aid Training Instructor at Aster Hospital Mankhool. 

During the course of two hours, the children were taught about the various emergency situations that might occur at home and elsewhere, in a fun and interactive manner. These emergency situations included fractures, vomiting, breathlessness and choking. Special emphasis was placed on first aid for choking, due to the large number of incidents of choking that occur with school going children. The demonstrations were all performed live, with the use of a mannequin in order to recreate real life situations. At the end of the training, the children were given special sashes and caps, which commemorated their participation and their newly acquired knowledge. 

Aster Scouts is a children oriented health engagement training program organized by Aster Kids and run by Aster Hospital and Clinic that is developed to equip and educate young children about healthy living at a very young age. Aster Kids regularly conducts community initiatives, geared at teaching children the basics of health, wellness and safety.
