First-aid awareness within the community

Your child may be coming to the age where you feel comfortable enough to allow them to stay home alone. If this is the case, they may be more prone to injury. According to the Centers for Disease and Control, accidental injuries are the leading cause of death in children worldwide, which occur more when children are unsupervised.

This is Presley Gallimore and Abby Bevil; we are both a part of HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) at Marshall County High School. We know you cannot be with your child at all times, so, as a parent, you should be properly equipped with first aid knowledge. This allows you to teach your children what to do in case of an emergency. This could include a cut, burn, choking, stings/bites, and poison ingestion. You would then have the proper knowledge for not only teaching/treating your children but others within the community.
