CPR Training : A Lifesaving Lesson at Bond

On January 27th and 28th, students from Grade 4 to Grade 10 at Bond Academy had a special, yet very important lesson – CPR Training. The Toronto EMS staff delivered a hands-on course that covered the Heimlich Manoeuvre, First Aid, EpiPen use and Defibrillator use, as well as CPR for adults and babies.

“I think teaching first-aid skills to these children is extremely important, there is really no age limits about when children can learn how to do CPR and how to do lifesaving skills”, said Hayden Smith, a Primary Care Paramedic with Toronto EMS.

During the over four-hour session, Bond students learned useful lifesaving skills, such as the ABC’s of CPR, the “Airway-Breathing-CPR” process, and the “Call-Pump-Blow” steps. They also participated in a variety of hands-on activities to practice their skills.

Mr. Smith mentioned that, since children could run into some situations that need lifesaving skills at home or at school just as easily as adults can, it is essential to give them the confidence to call 911 and the ability to assist when a loved one or a friend is in trouble.

All students successfully completed the course and passed the written component, and received a CPR card. Not only is this lesson ideal for students who are interested in babysitting or building a résumé for future job application, most importantly, it could save a life!
