First Aid Training
Singapore Red Cross supports the national goal of having a First Aider in Every Home.
Singapore Red Cross Academy conducts a wide range of standard and specialised First Aid courses for volunteers and the community, to empower them to respond to emergencies, at home and abroad. We also hold regular talks in communities and organisations to create awareness about the importance of first aid and to work towards the goal of having a first aider in every home.
"This [Standard First Aid] course was an eye-opener for me. It was also very educational. We cannot always wait for the ambulance to arrive... It provides practical tips on how to handle real-life situations and we learn how to save lives."
Ms Nurulijannah Binti Kamaludin, flight attendant from Jetstar Singapore
Jetstar Asia Airways Pte Ltd commissioned the Singapore Red Cross Academy to provide Standard First Aid training for its 500 regional crew and pilots.
