Could you help a choking child? #TheChokeables

 St John Ambulance, believe that everyone should have the skills and confidence to know what to do in an emergency. Knowing basic first aid can be the difference between life and death – and every week they hear of new people whose lives have been saved because someone nearby knew what to do.

Could you help a choking child? 

40% of parents asked by SJA have witnessed their own baby choke and when almost four-fifths don’t know what to do in this situation so they have made a short memorable video, The Chokeables – featuring the voices of David Walliams, David Mitchell, Johnny Vegas and Sir John Hurt – that shows people how to help a choking baby.

In The Chokeables, the celebrities take on the characters of animated objects that could potentially choke babies: a small princess toy, a pen lid, a jelly baby and a peanut. They’ve joined together because they’ve had enough and want to show how easy it is to save a choking baby’s life.

In just 40 seconds you can learn how to give first aid to a choking baby…

Giveaway

    February 16, 2015 / 7:48 am

    Not as confident as I’d like to be

  4. Ashleigh Allan
    February 16, 2015 / 7:51 am

    Not really – I went on a first aid course when my daughter was about 1 but I still think I might panic in an emergency 🙁

  5. Patricia Edwards
    February 16, 2015 / 7:54 am

    Not really, perhaps I should look into it a bit more

  6. Angie Hoggett
    February 16, 2015 / 8:07 am

    not really, I wish I knew more!

  7. Leanne Bell
    February 16, 2015 / 9:40 am

  10. Liane
    February 16, 2015 / 11:24 am

    Yes, fairly confident

  11. Jean Vaughan
    February 16, 2015 / 11:49 am

    Yes, I could- working with children, even before I had my own we had to keep abreast of all first aid for children.This knowledge was passed on to my children who are in turn confident they could do the right thing with theirs.This advert is brilliant- clear and uncomplicated and very memorable.

  12. Samantha R
    February 16, 2015 / 1:22 pm

    I have taken a few courses in the past but I still wouldn’t be massively confident

  13. Sarah Pybus
    February 16, 2015 / 1:32 pm

    Not really 🙁 It does scare me that if my children did need urgent first aid I wouldnt know how to help

  14. clair downham
    February 16, 2015 / 1:33 pm

    no i dont im afraid

  15. elaine dale

  17. Steve Weaver
    February 16, 2015 / 2:44 pm

  18. Paula Barker
    February 16, 2015 / 2:56 pm

    people say instinct kicks in when you are in an emergency situation,I like to think it would

  19. Tracey baker
    February 16, 2015 / 2:59 pm

    Yes I feel very confident should the situation arise!!!

  20. charlotte qualter
    February 16, 2015 / 3:16 pm

    honestly i dont know! could be more knowledgable

  21. sarah rees
    February 16, 2015 / 3:28 pm

    I would like to think so, I work as a support worker so we attend a lot of first aid course to support the job we do.

  22. Marion Weir
    February 16, 2015 / 3:47 pm

    I certainly hope so, I’m a nurse 😀

  23. Sue McCarthy
    February 16, 2015 / 4:10 pm

    Never been on a course but I would certainly try to help in whatever way I could

  24. gillian burden
    February 16, 2015 / 4:12 pm

    fairly confident , i hope

  25. Tracy Newton
    February 16, 2015 / 4:37 pm

    I think that I would be ok. I would probably panic afterwards.

  26. Susan Sargent
    February 16, 2015 / 5:25 pm

    No I would only a hindrance,

  27. Kaci Soderstrom
    February 16, 2015 / 6:28 pm

    Depends what situation it is! I think I know the basics of what to do.. but I think you tend to panic when it actually happens and anything you do know you forget.

  28. laura stewart
    February 16, 2015 / 6:57 pm

    i think i would be ok

  29. Lyla
    February 16, 2015 / 7:32 pm

    Not really – I can’t even find my own pulse!

  30. Kevin Honey
    February 16, 2015 / 7:40 pm

    Not entirely, but I could make a start

  31. kayleigh Bates
    February 16, 2015 / 7:43 pm

    nope, I done a first aid course years ago but wouldnt be confident

  32. Janice Dunn
    February 16, 2015 / 7:43 pm

    I complete a CPR/Anaphylaxis course every year so I am pretty confident should the situation arise

  33. laura banks
    February 16, 2015 / 8:32 pm

    no not really i know a few basics but not much

  34. Julie Ward
    February 16, 2015 / 9:03 pm

    No I would be useless

  35. Miss Tracy Hanson
    February 16, 2015 / 9:05 pm

    No, but going to classes soon to learn. 🙂

  36. Martina Pichova
    February 16, 2015 / 9:06 pm

    In theory I know what to do but I can’t say I would be confident in real life situation.

  37. karen Howden
    February 16, 2015 / 9:13 pm

    Obviously its something that you hope you never need to use but I am confident that I can cope in an emergency. I for one am very grateful for the man who tried to resuscitate my son unfortunately he was unsuccessful

  38. Brian Cheney
    February 16, 2015 / 9:28 pm

    No. Only have common sense, so I would quite like some basic training.

  39. Jessica Powell
    February 16, 2015 / 10:30 pm

    I’ve had training, but I’m still not overly confident to be honest!

  40. TONY LONGSTAFF
    February 16, 2015 / 10:53 pm

    I have done first aid training, but am not always confident in my skills.

  41. ZARA
    February 16, 2015 / 11:06 pm

    Yes, because I’d save someone’s life; all I need now is a first aid kit! 🙂

  42. pete c
    February 16, 2015 / 11:45 pm

    knowledge could be better but I wouldnt back off trying to help someone

  43. Brad Start
    February 16, 2015 / 11:49 pm

    I’m afraid not, so I would love to get some basic training or assistance.

  44. gary wilson
    February 17, 2015 / 12:32 am

    I have had some first aid training so would be quite comfortable with it

  45. Ruth Harwood
    February 17, 2015 / 8:58 am

    It depends on the situation – in serious situations, not really!

  46. Claire Hull
    February 17, 2015 / 9:03 am

    Yes, because I’ve had quite a lot of first aid training

  47. Michelle Smith
    February 17, 2015 / 10:28 am

    I’d be ok with most situations

  48. David Thomson
    February 17, 2015 / 10:34 am

    I would do all I could – basic first aid – but would help any experienced First Aider according to their instructions. Unfortunately, I always seem to be the one likely to need the first aid!

  49. Helen Stratton
    February 17, 2015 / 12:28 pm

    I feel confident in most emergencies.

  50. victoria thurgood
    February 17, 2015 / 1:36 pm

    No i don’t i think i would panic

  51. Natalie Gaff
    February 17, 2015 / 1:42 pm

    I’d like to say yes given the training xx

  52. aaron broad
    February 17, 2015 / 2:40 pm

    Not really, I used to be trained in First Aid but has been a while

  53. kadir-buxton
    February 17, 2015 / 3:36 pm

    I was tought as a child to put the child’s stomach on your leg, with head near the floor, and bang on the upper back until the object is dislodged, and it works.

  54. Gillian Holmes
    February 17, 2015 / 4:19 pm

    Not any more I haven’t done a refresher course recently

  55. Ema J Lowe
    February 17, 2015 / 4:24 pm

    I like to think I would know what to do, but I think that would all just go out the window, especially if it was a child of mine.

  56. charlotte
    February 17, 2015 / 5:32 pm

    I have recently done a first aid course….so confident on the theory! Real life a different question though

  57. Rachel Butterworth
    February 17, 2015 / 6:29 pm

    Only confident in basic first aid. Would prefer to know more.

  58. Corinne Peat
    February 17, 2015 / 6:41 pm

    No, it’s been a long time since I practiced first aid!

  59. Laura Pritchard
    February 17, 2015 / 7:01 pm

    Not really – I’ve taken paediatric first aid courses before but unless you’re practising it regularly you forget loads immediately!

  60. Sophielauren18
    February 17, 2015 / 7:09 pm

    I wouldn’t know where to start or what to do but I think I would remain calm in the situation.

  61. Lynsey Buchanan
    February 17, 2015 / 8:43 pm

    Yes i do

  62. Karen Barrett
    February 17, 2015 / 8:53 pm

    Fairly confident in my skills

  63. Jo m welsh
    February 17, 2015 / 9:03 pm

    I like to think I am ok in an emergency if I had to do it I would

  64. Amanda Walsh
    February 17, 2015 / 9:05 pm

    Fairly confident, I am familiar with first aid

  65. Jayne
    February 17, 2015 / 9:06 pm

    No I don’t feel confident

  66. John Tingay
    February 17, 2015 / 9:19 pm

    Willing and somewhat able, but not confident!

  67. Lorraine Tinsley
    February 17, 2015 / 9:27 pm

    I’ve been on a first aid course, we have them in work annually, but I still don’t think I would be that confident

  68. Siobhan Davis
    February 17, 2015 / 9:40 pm

    Yes had my training 🙂 x Would love to be considered x

  69. sarah birkett
    February 17, 2015 / 9:47 pm

    I am ashamed to say that the answer would be No

  70. Graham Stephens
    February 17, 2015 / 10:01 pm

    I think so – I’ve had some basic training…

  71. ann clements
    February 17, 2015 / 10:04 pm

    No I would not be confident to give first aid

  72. Becky John
    February 17, 2015 / 10:25 pm

    Yes I would feel confident.

  73. Caroline H
    February 17, 2015 / 10:30 pm

    I feel reasonably confident at First Aid but wouldn’t turn down the chance of a refresher course if it was offered.

  74. Lois Eaton
    February 17, 2015 / 10:30 pm

    No, I have had training in the past but not recently.

  75. Anthony
    February 17, 2015 / 10:55 pm

    I have completed the St Johns course and have rarely had to use the skills taught, but I would like to think it would all come flooding back if ever required.

  76. Karen Richards
    February 17, 2015 / 11:03 pm

    Not confident but did stop my child choking when he was young. Instinct took over.

  77. Natalie Crossan
    February 17, 2015 / 11:12 pm

    No but I’d like to learn

  78. Emma
    February 17, 2015 / 11:28 pm

    No, I don’t think I do

  79. David Bull
    February 17, 2015 / 11:41 pm

    A scary situation to be in – but feel a bit more confident after watching the video on this page.

  80. Peter Lockwood
    February 17, 2015 / 11:53 pm

    I would not be confident

  81. Melisa
    February 18, 2015 / 12:01 am

    Unfortunately now, I wish I did!

  82. Barbara Jane Shaw
    February 18, 2015 / 1:00 am

    Yes, as a foster carer we have to do a St John’s Ambulance first aid course every three years.

  83. David Sweet
    February 18, 2015 / 6:03 am

    Yes, and I have done so on several occasions

  84. Fiona K
    February 18, 2015 / 6:20 am

    No I don’t feel confident enough

  85. February 18, 2015 / 7:16 am

    Yes. Ive done first aid training, not specifically pediatric first aid but im confident enough that i would be okay should the situation arise.

    However 2 children who have eaten ‘proper’ food from 5 months, one child who has fallen down stairs twice, one child who runs with her head looking at the floor so frequently runs into door frames ive never had to do any fist aid. yet.

  86. Mrs Rachel Heap
    February 18, 2015 / 8:16 am

    It depends on the situation I have had First Aid training it was years ago i would certainly try my best

  87. hayley berry
    February 18, 2015 / 8:38 am

    under some circumstances i feel i could deal with things without panicking. It all depends on whats happened.

  88. claire blaney
    February 18, 2015 / 8:58 am

    yes i think as long as you stay calm you can

  89. aj
    February 18, 2015 / 9:57 am

    Not really, I need to have some training.

  90. Stephanie Whitehouse
    February 18, 2015 / 10:08 am

    No – I suspect I’d just freeze

  91. Paul T
    February 18, 2015 / 10:46 am

    Not really. I’d have a go though.

  92. Keshia Esgate
    February 18, 2015 / 11:18 am

    Most circumstances,. yes

  93. Keshia Esgate
    February 18, 2015 / 11:19 am

    In most circumstances I would be confident

  94. Miss Potato
    February 18, 2015 / 12:03 pm

    I would still be unsure as to how comfortable i am doing it

  95. Tracey belcher
    February 18, 2015 / 2:06 pm

    I have done lots of training in the past and have been assured that in a situation it all comes flooding back so yes, not over confident but ‘ish’

  96. lynn mitchell
    February 18, 2015 / 2:50 pm

    no i worry that i will not be able to remember what to do

  97. Lisa C
    February 18, 2015 / 2:52 pm

    Yes, my daughter started to choke on a piece of apple. my previous first aid training just kicked in and overtook everything else

  98. Becky Griffiths
    February 18, 2015 / 2:58 pm

    I mostly feel confident. It depends what it is.

  99. lynn Heath
    February 18, 2015 / 3:03 pm

    I have done some basic training at work, but I am sure that I would panic if faced with an emergency at home

  100. David Paterson
    February 18, 2015 / 3:50 pm

    A bit but not a lot

  101. February 18, 2015 / 4:16 pm

    I’d hope adrenaline would kick in but I don’t think you can know till you’re in that situation

  102. ray becker
    February 18, 2015 / 5:52 pm

    know a bit need refresher

  103. Allan Smith
    February 18, 2015 / 5:56 pm

    I would like to think so but you never know how your going to react when your put in that situation.

  104. Christine Lockley
    February 18, 2015 / 7:15 pm

    I’d like to think I know the basics but until somethings happens you never know how you are going to react – I think it also depends on your relationship with the injured too

  105. sam nowog
    February 18, 2015 / 7:20 pm

    yes I feel confident

  106. Vivien Baird
    February 18, 2015 / 8:08 pm

    I know the basics I don’t know how I would react

  107. Eva Appleby
    February 18, 2015 / 8:25 pm

    Pretty much feel confident in an emergency

  108. Graham Chealehay
    February 18, 2015 / 10:06 pm

    Mostly confident I could cope

  109. Emma nixon
    February 18, 2015 / 10:26 pm

    I think I have a basic knowledge but would probably go into panic mode and forget…

  110. Tanya Camilleri
    February 19, 2015 / 11:37 am

    I know the basics. I’m thinking about doing a course though now I have two kids of different ages.

  111. angela sandhu
    February 19, 2015 / 3:26 pm

    To be honest i dont think i would cope well

  112. Fiona
    February 19, 2015 / 3:39 pm

    no I don’t think I would. I’d try but worry I’d panic.

  113. Wendy Smith
    February 19, 2015 / 6:17 pm

    No not confident, but I would do what I could

  114. Kay panayi
    February 19, 2015 / 9:56 pm

    I’m awful in an emergency

  115. Rich Tyler
    February 20, 2015 / 3:30 am

    I’d like to think I’d at least try to help! 🙂

  116. Michaela Hannah
    February 20, 2015 / 12:42 pm

    Not really,i do have basic knowledge of first aid but i would be scared i’d forget in an emergency situation

  117. Maxine Owen
    February 20, 2015 / 4:17 pm

    Not really, I would try not to panic but it is difficult to.

  118. Roxanne
    February 20, 2015 / 9:11 pm

    Do what I could

  119. winnie
    February 20, 2015 / 9:42 pm

    i only know the basics so not really :S

  120. Monica Gilbert
    February 20, 2015 / 10:40 pm

    I feel a little confident, but could be much more. I’m expecting to take first aid training soon, so I expect that will increase my confidence level.

  121. Karen Knox
    February 21, 2015 / 2:48 am

    Yes, although it would possibly depend on the nature of the incident x

  122. Christine Shelley
    February 21, 2015 / 9:15 am

    No I’m afraid not

  123. katie skeoch
    February 21, 2015 / 12:00 pm

    Probably not, a refresher course would be good!

  124. Kristy Brown
    February 21, 2015 / 1:08 pm

    Yes – I’ve been a first aider since I was young and have had quite a few scrapes with the children, everything just kicks in

  125. tony allan
    February 21, 2015 / 5:37 pm

    Fairly confident, but could do with more training

  126. Fiona R
    February 21, 2015 / 8:47 pm

    Yes I think I’d feel quite confident although when faced with it something it may be a different story :/

  127. February 21, 2015 / 9:35 pm

    I did a first aid course when I was a student but I really should do a refresher course

  128. claire woods
    February 22, 2015 / 9:08 am

    No, I think I’d panic.

  129. Marie Booth
    February 22, 2015 / 11:45 am

    It’s one of my worst fears. I have watched the clip and would definitely try if it happens but I worry I would panic too much

  130. Hekna
    February 22, 2015 / 2:24 pm

    with minor injuries, yes

  131. lucy higgins
    February 22, 2015 / 2:40 pm

    not totally confident so it would be good to have some training to refresh my memory

  132. February 22, 2015 / 6:26 pm

    Yes – I did a course not so long ago

  133. Stevie
    February 24, 2015 / 3:39 pm

    I think I’d panic if I cared about them. I’ve helped strangers before though.

  134. February 24, 2015 / 7:37 pm

    I was a Red Cross cadet for a few years when I was a teenager.All my training was put into practice when my youngest at 8 months swallowed a couple of large sequins from a Christmas card made by her older sister.I had to call an ambulance in the end as everything I was doing wasn’t working.

  135. Freya Knudsen
    February 24, 2015 / 10:56 pm

    This is really valuable and it makes me think I should have a first aid kit at home, just in case

  136. Anthea Holloway
    February 25, 2015 / 2:17 pm

    I hope that I know enough first aid to be able to cope in an emergency.

  137. Jayne T
    February 25, 2015 / 9:38 pm

    No I don’t really, my mind always goes blank in an emergency.

  138. MichelleD
    February 25, 2015 / 9:52 pm

    Probably not, I could do with some tips!

  139. jen morgan
    February 27, 2015 / 4:34 pm

    I think I would feel fairly confident

  140. Michelle Banks
    February 28, 2015 / 7:32 am

    not really x

  141. Spencer Broadley
    February 28, 2015 / 6:25 pm

    I have had to learn from my times in hospital

  142. Scott Fallon
    March 1, 2015 / 2:31 pm

    Yes i do

  143. Joanna ButlerSavage
    March 1, 2015 / 3:20 pm

    refresher training would be great – I learned ages ago

  144. Keith Hunt
    March 1, 2015 / 9:00 pm

    Yes as we have do a course each year.

  145. anthony martin
    March 2, 2015 / 1:44 am

    Was once a trained first aider when i worked in mental health but a refresher would be good, also have the fear nowadays everyone wants to sue everyone if you make a minor mistake x

  146. Rosie Holloway
    March 2, 2015 / 8:52 am

    Not at all – I can do the basic things like putting on a plaster but if there’s too much blood I get squemish and I have no idea about anything else.

  147. Jessica Walker
    March 2, 2015 / 10:12 am

    I wouldn’t feel confident as it is one of my worst fears with my little one but I know what I have to do

  148. Michelle Carlin
    March 2, 2015 / 11:29 am

    No, not really. I should really take a course.

  149. @jamesmum15
    March 2, 2015 / 2:30 pm

    I think i would be good in an emergeny.

  150. daz92uk
    March 2, 2015 / 4:42 pm

    yes total but first aid is the best idea

  151. Sara JaneG
    March 3, 2015 / 7:56 am

    Quite I’ve taken a course

  152. Paula Phillips
    March 3, 2015 / 9:40 am

    I hope I would be confident enough now as I have recently taken a first aid course.

  153. amyangelmouse
    March 3, 2015 / 12:51 pm

    I have taken first aid courses at work but its always good to get a refresher.

  154. emma falvi
    March 3, 2015 / 2:15 pm

    i always make sure that i am up to date

  155. Jess Mandeville
    March 3, 2015 / 4:03 pm

    Probably, but it would depend what the emergency was. I’m more confident with certain aspects of first aid than others.

  156. lyn burgess
    March 3, 2015 / 5:04 pm

    I think I would be quite confident with friends and strangers, but would be a little more nervous with my own family

  157. James Travis
    March 3, 2015 / 7:21 pm

    No not really

  158. leanne weir
    March 3, 2015 / 9:57 pm

    I have only taken first aid courses at work

  159. Shirley Evans
    March 3, 2015 / 9:59 pm

    I would feel reasonably confident to do first aid in an emergency

  160. christine westlake
    March 3, 2015 / 10:02 pm

    I have on several occasions – been a trained first aider for 40+ years.

  161. Isabelle Smith
    March 3, 2015 / 11:08 pm

    i know the basics but i should learn more

  162. Angi
    March 4, 2015 / 3:38 am

    I feel confident to deliver adult first aid as was in St. John ambulance for long time but since having children & cannot afford course I hope that reading up will be enough should I ever need to step in for my babies!!!

  163. Keith Wallbanks
    March 4, 2015 / 9:07 am

    I know many of the moves but lack confidence

  164. steph lovatt
    March 4, 2015 / 10:57 am

    Yes I’ve done courses

  165. March 4, 2015 / 11:30 am

    I’m usually very calm in an emergency, but I’m not sure how I would react if it were my kids, I think it might be time for me to sign up to a first aid course

  166. Becca Staples
    March 4, 2015 / 3:11 pm

    Not really, i did a course but that was 15 years ago!! It really should be something i need to re-do x

  167. Katherine Coldicott
    March 4, 2015 / 3:28 pm

    Have done a couple of first aid courses so hopefully I’d be OK.

  168. katherine b
    March 4, 2015 / 3:59 pm

    I would like to be more confident…

  169. donna l jones
    March 4, 2015 / 6:41 pm

    no not really

  170. Helen Allan
    March 4, 2015 / 7:47 pm

    I have been first aid trained but the last time was a couple of years ago so it would be nice to refresh my training to feel confident again.

  171. Eleanor Powell
    March 4, 2015 / 7:54 pm

    with most things yes

  172. March 4, 2015 / 8:26 pm

    All I have is common sense I’m afraid. I really ought to get some training.

  173. March 4, 2015 / 8:26 pm

    I think I would be fairly confident with most first aid emergencies

  174. Jenny
    March 4, 2015 / 8:32 pm

    I’m trained but I’d feel really nervous.

  175. Heather Simpson
    March 4, 2015 / 10:16 pm

    Not real;y

  176. Lucy Robinson
    March 4, 2015 / 10:18 pm

    I feel better after watching the clip above. x

  177. Caroline Blaza
    March 4, 2015 / 10:39 pm

    No I don’t think I would be able to.

  178. Diana
    March 4, 2015 / 11:40 pm

    I don’t feel confident :/

  179. Rebecca Hodson
    March 5, 2015 / 8:02 am

    I think I would feel fairly confident in most emergencies as I did previously do my First Aid certificate with the NHS. Although it has been a couple of years, I still check the book regularly as well as information online to see if there have been any recommended changes.

  180. Laura Walker
    March 5, 2015 / 8:33 am

    Not really I’m just about to have a baby so would like to attend one of the free first aid courses that are on offer to boost my confidence

  181. Vickie Jackson
    March 5, 2015 / 9:14 am

    Once the panic subsided (everyone has a moment of panic) I feel quite confident that I’d be able to do the basics

  182. Kate Cass
    March 5, 2015 / 9:44 am

    I know I have what I need to be able to help in an emergency, yes I would be nervous but I think that I’d be able to get past that!

  183. Gemma Poulding
    March 5, 2015 / 10:56 am

    I have done some first aid training but dont feel confident but I think if the time came (hopefully not) I would be able to do something

  184. Karen R
    March 5, 2015 / 12:48 pm

    Not at all – I had first aid training years ago, but have always dreaded something happening

  185. Em S
    March 5, 2015 / 1:27 pm

    Not really, actually. That’s scary to me.

  186. Samantha Sugden
    March 5, 2015 / 1:58 pm

    no I panic to much

  187. trevor linvell
    March 5, 2015 / 2:39 pm

    Only the basics

  188. jo liddement
    March 5, 2015 / 3:53 pm

    I would only feel confident dealing with very basic first aid.

  189. chirag p
    March 5, 2015 / 4:00 pm

    no don’t have the confidence

  190. Rachael Pilkington
    March 5, 2015 / 5:20 pm

    Yes, I feel fairly confident with this

  191. Alice Hindley
    March 5, 2015 / 5:22 pm

    No not at all

  192. March 5, 2015 / 5:22 pm

    Yes I would feel confident

  193. Kelly Hooper
    March 5, 2015 / 5:42 pm

    I would be fairly confident

  194. claire wilkinson
    March 5, 2015 / 5:56 pm

    yep im qualified in first aid for adults, children and babies

  195. Sarah Ruse
    March 5, 2015 / 6:44 pm

    Yes, I’ve been a trained first aider for years.

  196. Sheri Darby
    March 5, 2015 / 7:05 pm

    No, I wish I did

  197. Graham Ashworth
    March 5, 2015 / 7:30 pm

    Sorry, but i dont do first aid very well 🙁

  198. julia mason
    March 5, 2015 / 7:41 pm

    Confident but, very scared

  199. Char A
    March 5, 2015 / 7:51 pm

    I feel quite confident.

  200. Jamie
    March 5, 2015 / 8:08 pm

    If I had ALL of the equipment then I would be a lot more confident

  201. Rebecca Powell
    March 5, 2015 / 8:27 pm

    I feel quite confident but a first aid kit would massively help

  202. jessica newman
    March 5, 2015 / 8:29 pm

    I would say im not particularly confident AND WOULD LIKE BETTER KNOWLEDGE

  203. karen Howden
    March 5, 2015 / 8:48 pm

    I am very practical during an incident but after I am a blithering wreck

  204. Stev Rigby
    March 5, 2015 / 8:53 pm

    I feel a bit rusty

  205. Nataliejane
    March 5, 2015 / 9:07 pm

    I have done a first aid course so think I know what to do but an worried I would panic and go blank.

  206. tracey morgan
    March 5, 2015 / 9:20 pm

    I only know the basics

  207. Kerry Lethbridge
    March 5, 2015 / 9:54 pm

    Semi-confident I’m pretty good in a crisis and know what to do but I’m not sure how I’d cope with my own babies

  208. amanda.greensmith
    March 5, 2015 / 10:02 pm

    i feel quite confident having past my first aid 3 times x

  209. Carol Phile
    March 5, 2015 / 10:26 pm

    I used to be confident but I need to.update my knowledge

  210. Patricia Avery
    March 5, 2015 / 10:44 pm

    Reasonably confident as I have had some First Aid training, but I don’t think anybody can feel complacent 🙂

  211. katie w
    March 5, 2015 / 10:48 pm

    Only basic stuff, my sister is a paramedic so she has soon me a few basic things.

  212. Monika S
    March 5, 2015 / 11:08 pm

    Yes, I think I am

  213. March 5, 2015 / 11:11 pm

    I’m pretty confident I would know what to do in a first aid emergency – I am the first aider for my place of work and have done a paediatric update too – the main thing is not to panic!

  214. Caroline Louise Wood
    March 5, 2015 / 11:27 pm

    I’d feel confident Yes as I have in past helped my own child when he were chocking as a toddler it’s important as a parent to have at least basic knowledge

  215. Tina L-D
    March 5, 2015 / 11:41 pm

    would say I’m confident. I usually get neighbors knocking on our door if one of the kids has had an injury

  216. Adam Curson
    March 6, 2015 / 12:45 am

    I had to do a 1st aid course for work 2 months ago. This was one thing I actually remember due to having 2 children under 3.

  217. alice lightning
    March 6, 2015 / 1:12 am

    I have already had to use quick response when my son had severe epilepsy fits very scary to witness indeed and my daughter fell and split her head open ended up taking to hospital a first aid kit is very important in the home panic then instinct usually kick in super giveaway to win

  218. Michelle Wild
    March 6, 2015 / 4:05 am

    No, I don’t think I am.

  219. John Mcgovern
    March 6, 2015 / 4:35 am

    I know from experience that I can and have given first aid in real emergencies. However i have no proper training and that would mean that I would not intervene if trained first aiders are nearby.

  220. heather harris
    March 6, 2015 / 7:07 am

    I am fairly confident

  221. Lorraine mabbitt
    March 6, 2015 / 9:06 am

    I know the basics but would properly panic.

  222. Maria Jane Knight
    March 6, 2015 / 10:14 am

    I feel a little rusty, i think it must be almost 7 years ago that i had my first aid training.

  223. Susan Ocock
    March 6, 2015 / 10:21 am

    Not really although it might depend upon who it was. I have given first aid in an emergency when it involved one of my nearest and dearest, but don’t know if I would be as confident with a stranger

  224. Colette Sheran
    March 6, 2015 / 10:44 am

    In theory but I don’t know about practice

  225. Jackie ONeill
    March 6, 2015 / 10:46 am

    No not very confident

  226. Harley
    March 6, 2015 / 11:37 am

    Not as confident as I should be x

  227. March 6, 2015 / 12:19 pm

    I did a first aid course years ago, and am sure it would come back to me if I needed it… x

  228. DrEmily
    March 6, 2015 / 1:46 pm

    Everyone should know basic first aid

  229. Kevin Minihane
    March 6, 2015 / 2:23 pm

    Being a first aider at work I have to say yes?

  230. ZOE SPINNER
    March 6, 2015 / 2:28 pm

    I feel confident but you can always learn more

  231. Helen Garner
    March 6, 2015 / 2:56 pm

    don’t feel that confident

  232. Susan Pringle
    March 6, 2015 / 3:17 pm

    Not as much as I would like to be.

  233. Barbara Handley
    March 6, 2015 / 3:56 pm

    Not really as I have health problems. I need to know more in order to advise someone else what to do.

  234. Jill fairbank
    March 6, 2015 / 5:43 pm

    i know a little but not a lot at all

  235. Phillip James Davies
    March 6, 2015 / 6:23 pm

    Yes I am O.K.! 🙂

  236. Jo-Anne holton
    March 6, 2015 / 6:43 pm

    Id like to think so, ive had lots of training!!

  237. March 6, 2015 / 7:22 pm

    Bit mixed – ok with some things and not with others

  238. Sarah Davies
    March 6, 2015 / 7:30 pm

    Not entirely confident. There are some things I would be ok with.

  239. Dawn Totton
    March 6, 2015 / 8:12 pm

    Not 100% confident to be honest!

  240. Val Pownall
    March 6, 2015 / 9:07 pm

    Minor things maybe!

  241. teresa sheldon
    March 6, 2015 / 9:31 pm

    I’d like to think I could cope in a crisis however it the thought of it really scares

  242. Karis
    March 6, 2015 / 9:34 pm

    Not at all.

  243. Janet Rumley
    March 6, 2015 / 9:44 pm

    I used to be confident but realistically I could now do with a refresher course.

  244. Victoria B
    March 6, 2015 / 10:00 pm

    Yes, I have had some basic training.

  245. Tasha Patterson
    March 6, 2015 / 10:12 pm

    Yes, I used to be a nurse so confident in that area.

  246. Anne Woodthorpe
    March 6, 2015 / 10:48 pm

    Yes I do.

  247. cathie west
    March 6, 2015 / 10:56 pm

    I did a basic first aid course when my kids attended the St Johns years ago. i also keep a small fold out *what to do in an emergency booklet* i keep that in my bag. never know if u will need it.

  248. tishist
    March 6, 2015 / 11:48 pm

    I wouldn’t feel that confident
